Employment and Family Conditions for Danish Expatriated Engineers

  • Torben AndersenAffiliated withUniversity of Southern Denmark

Danish engineers living and working abroad have – over an 8 year period – been asked about their employment and family conditions. Survey data show that both before and after the World financial crisis they tend to have (top) management positions coupled with a high pay and benefits. Some variations exist concerning spouses attachment to the local labour market, indicating a large variety of family models. The engineers take up foreign assignments out of personal, professional and family reasons, and not because of company pressures.
