​COWI maintains top ranking in Universum’s image survey for students within engineering and natural science. Novo Nordisk, Rambøll and Lego come out on top of the survey.

“We are pleased that we maintain the position as preferred workplace for students. From a business prospective, this position will be more and more important over the coming years as our economy starts to pick up. We must prepare ourselves for increasing competition over the young talents than before the financial crises”, says COWI’s Danish HR manager, Finn Bech Andersen.

In a similar survey among academics in work, COWI ranks second highest. All in all, COWI’s position must be maintained.


Students aim for higher job purpose

Interestingly, this year’s survey shows that young people value high job purpose as an important parameter when choosing their future workplace. This is a novelty. Work life balance and professional challenges are still important, but it’s becoming more important for students in their carrier choice to see a higher purpose.

“This requires that we become even better at communicating the purpose of what we do, the value we create and the difference we make to the world around us”, says Finn Bech Andersen.​
