On behalf of the steering committee, it is a pleasure to invite companies with international employees and spouses to the launch of International Dual Career Network (IDCN) Jutland/Funen in Aarhus on January 26th, 2017.

International employees are more likely to stay if their spouse finds a job, and the IDCN network provides member companies with access to an international talent pool and helps partners of its employees to find jobs, networks and to gain knowledge about Danish work culture.

You do not have to be a large company to employ international staff, and therefore we look forward to seeing small, medium and large sized companies with international employees at the launch.

The event is free of charge and does not require any formal commitment on the part of the attendees.
