“This is an extraordinary situation for all of us. The health care system is challenged, and we may lack the human resources to solve the enormous task. At Danske Bank, we want to help take on this task by offering employees with a relevant background to use their hands and knowledge in the health care, while it is under heavy pressure,” says Head of HR at Danske Bank, Karsten Breum.
