The Danish Media Group, The Engineer, asks a web panel and members of IDA (the Danish union for engineers) to evaluate the 111 biggest engineering companies in Denmark to find the most attractive employer from the employees’ perspective. VP HR from Oticon and William Demant, Mads Kamp, is delighted with the result:

“I am really proud! We spend a great deal of energy on listening to the labour market and our own employees to create a working culture that is in tune with both newly graduated as well as highly skilled engineers. Part of our success derives from the nature of the products: It gives a true sense of meaning to use your engineering skills to create devices that allow people to live natural lives with friends and family.”

At the Danish headquarter in Smørum, Oticon employs more than 550 engineers with backgrounds in primarily mechanical, electrical and software development.
