JYSK employees have used their right and duty to speak up and rated JYSK as one of the best employers in the world.

Every year, the business magazine Forbes surveys 170,000 employees in more than 50 countries about their multinational employers. On the basis of the survey, a list is formed of the 700 best employers in the world.

Now, the surveyed employees have placed JYSK on the list among the best employers in the world.

“It makes me really proud that JYSK is among the world’s best employers. Especially because the list is made on the basis of what both current and former employees have to say about our company as a workplace. That is for sure something to be proud of,” says Rami Jensen, President & CEO at JYSK.

To dig a bit deeper into the recognition, asked three store colleagues about their perspective on JYSK being one of the world’s best employers.

“It's always nice to hear that you work for one of the best employers in the world. It doesn't surprise me knowing that JYSK is committed to training and developing employees. I have grown from Sales Assistant to Deputy Store Manager in seven years. Now, I am following the Store Manager Trainee programme. When I compare that to companies around me, JYSK does a very good job.

When people ask me how it is to work for the same company for seven years, I proudly tell them that JYSK is a great employer where you always feel welcome. For me, one of the most important things is that I have such great colleagues.”

Justine Lemonnier from JYSK FranceJustine Lemonnier, Store Manager in Herouville, JYSK France

“I have been working for JYSK for more than two years, and I think that JYSK deserves its place as one of the best employers in the world. Thanks to JYSK, I finally feel fulfilled in my work. I always come to work with a smile on my face. It's a company with promises about career development, and compared to other companies, it's real at JYSK!

For me, it's an opportunity to work for this company. So, I talk about it to others. And now, we're one of the best employers in the world. This is a big plus for me as people can feel safe when they join us.”

“I feel extremely proud to be part of one of the best companies in the world. This demonstrates the company's commitment and dedication to create a positive and rewarding work environment for us.

I believe that this achievement by JYSK is the result of effective people management practices, such as encouraging professional growth, promoting a healthy work-life balance, and recognising the value of each employee. Working at JYSK inspires me to be better every day, and this result shows that it is possible to achieve business success while valuing the well-being of employees. GO JYSK!”
