On Tuesday the 30th of November, Verena Huppert Karlson will defend her PhD project concerning the Greenlandic workforce. The project has been underway since 2017.

Since 2017, Arctic Consensus has been the initiator and subsequent partner in a PhD project concerning the Greenlandic workforce. Under the heading “Salary is not the solution to everything: Job attribute preferences of employees in Greenland and implications for employer measures to attract and retain employees“, Verena Huppert Karlsson has investigated job preferences of the Greenlandic workforce. This has resulted in a number of recommendations for current and future initiatives with regard to recruitment and retention of labor.

The project is a collaboration between Aalborg University, Kommuneqarfik Sermersooq, Port of Aalborg, Greenland Business Association and Arctic Consensus.

The defense will take place at Aalborg University, Tuesday the 30th of November from 13.00 – 16.00. You can read more about the defense and registration for the event (which takes place physically or digitally) here.

We are looking forward to an interesting afternoon!
