If you aren’t happy at work today, a new study says you should be asking yourself why.

Denmark is second only to Germany for the number of 'best places' to work in Europe, according to the latest continental study by Great Place to Work, a global consulting and advisory firm.

Some 2,330 companies from 19 European countries participated, including 136 from Denmark, and Denmark had 21 'top locations', just two behind Germany.

“I think it is impressive that so many Danish companies scored so highly. A recent Eurostat poll showed similar results,” said Ditte Vigsø, the head of Great Place to Work's Danish office, in a statement.

"These results could be a very strong competitive advantage when it comes to attracting the best employees from abroad."

In the category for 'Large Workplaces in Europe in 2014', Beierholm finished ninth, EnergiMidt tenth, Comwell Hotels 13th and Irma 15th.

And in the 'Small and Medium-sized Workplaces' category, housing group Bofællesskaberne Edelsvej finished second, Hartmanns fifth and Conscia ninth, with Herning kommunale tandpleje, Axcess, Mjølner Informatics and Abakion all in the top 20.

Great Place to Work, a global consulting and advisory firm with offices in 45 countries worldwide, is committed to helping workplaces improve.
