Our clients’ demand for the professional skills of temporary workers is non-negotiable – and that’s how it should be. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to find skilled temporary workers in Denmark. But when we look beyond the borders, there are many skilled foreign nationals.
Many of our clients are provided with foreign labour on a permanent basis. The reason for our clients’ loyalty is that our employees work efficiently. The main motivation of Danish companies to use foreign labour is the willingness to work.
One Friday afternoon we had an urgent need to run production on the weekend. I gathered our 70 employees from BlueCollar together and asked 30 to report for work. They were all willing to report for work.” Production manager in the food industry.
Low sickness absence
Danish companies that use foreign labour generally experience a very low rate of sickness absence. Sickness absence for our temporary staff is much lower than the average. In 2013, our sickness absence rate was 0.31% while DI’s industry average rate was 4.7%.
BlueCollar is a member of the VikarBranchen, which is part of DI (the Confederation of Danish Industry). This gives our clients the assurance that we comply with the Danish Act on Temporary Workers, which stipulates that temporary workers are entitled to the same salary and terms as permanent employees in a corresponding job.
We take care of everything so you don’t have to worry about either recruitment or administration.
You can get hold of us around the clock at our emergency telephone number in case of urgent situations.
Our temporary workers receive collective agreement-based pay and work on the same terms as the client’s permanent employees.
