Through our different jobs and strong focus on social integration, apprenticeships, and skills development, we seek to create value for the individual, for Danish Crown, and for society in general.
Upskilling our hourly-paid coworkers
We strive to build competencies for our hourly-paid coworkers, and we continuously provide courses for people with dyslexia and basic upskilling courses in Danish, math, and IT.
In collaboration with educational institutes and production directors in Denmark, we have introduced a course for production workers who wish to become industrial operators. By upskilling our employees, they become qualified to operate the robots that are to replace some of the most physically requiring workflows in the future.
Attracting young people to our industry
We are responsible for attracting young people to a career in the food industry. Therefore, we are in partnerships with the Danish Meat Trade College, the Danish Agriculture & Food Council, and Danish state schools to stimulate interest among young people.
We also have cocreated a Danish butcher training programme with health and safety, sustainability, and prevention of injuries as part of the curriculum.
You just want to be an ordinary employee, and that is how we feel here.
Diversity is a competitive advantage
We believe that employees with multiple backgrounds bring diverse perspectives and different experiences and form the best foundation for creating a sustainable future for food. That is why diversity is important to us.
Focus on gender and nationality
We recognise that diversity means more than gender identification and nationality, and also includes aspects like age, ethnicity, culture, religion, physical ability, education and skills. Yet, our current focus is on better gender distribution and nationality diversity.
