Åse, Mislav and Kavoura are all very proud of JYSK’s great annual results. The fact that the success makes JYSK a solid workplace also means a lot to them. 

JYSK has presented yet another record result for the financial year 2020/21. asked three Store Managers how they feel about being part of a company that, besides providing record results, also make up a solid workplace in a world marked by the pandemic’s unpredictability.

Åse Apelseth Skaare, Store Manager at JYSK in Volda, Norway


“I feel proud to be a part of a company which year after year listens to the customers and which is focusing on developing the employees to enable them to deliver the best customer service. And a company which really values all employees and offers opportunities. 

I am so proud that this recipe has led to a new record result for JYSK, and it is rewarding to know that my colleagues and I are a part of the success.

I am grateful to be a part of JYSK because I feel safe. I can use my energy to focus on what is important at work, at home or wherever because I know I am a part of a company that is competent, solution-oriented, and stable. While the pandemic has made things unpredictable, my workplace has been a safe spot to me.”

Mislav Čmelješević, Store Manager at JYSK in Đakovo, Croatia


“I am very proud of the fact that JYSK achieves top results, and it is an indicator that we have a great strategy. The strategy is visible in the whole company, and the results we achieve together are an indicator of high motivation among all employees. That chain of success is a special feeling for me and for my team.

In these times when the pandemic makes many things unpredictable and uncertain, it is very important to me to have a good and stable workplace. It is very clear that JYSK is still developing and maintains a fast pace of expansion. The unity among colleagues is strong. These aspects give us all security and even greater motivation.”

Kavoura Panagiota, Store Manager at JYSK in Piraeus, Greece


“A new record result makes me very happy. It motivates me and my team to do our best to contribute to these record results and to try even harder every year. 

Since my first day in JYSK, I have realised how great a feeling it is to have security in your work. With the start of the pandemic, this feeling became even stronger and I really feel lucky to be part of this company.”
