‘The Danish workplace is becoming more and more international. Denmark is facing a tight labour market where organisations increasingly look abroad to recruit their new employees. These foreign employees need to be integrated into the Danish workplace as well as society as a whole – a challenge that many other countries are facing as well. At the same time, Denmark is one of the countries in which it is the most difficult to settle in and find friends. My work on expatriate-local interactions will help organisations as well as expatriates themselves to make these essential connections, so that they are able to benefit from them.’
