First Friend in Denmark

Mariola Kajkowska is the Founder of First Friend in Denmark a company with the purpose to support companies in Denmark in the process of retaining their international employees. Denmark is known for its work-life balance and hygge but at the same time, it is challenging for the internationals who live there to settle well and get a feeling of belonging.

In 2007 I started working with recruitment, relocation, and integration of international employees in Denmark. Ever since, I have dedicated my professional life to assisting both international talents and companies employing internationals. For the last 15 years I have worked with all types of internationals living in Denmark – those who came because of work, studies, war & love.


What do I do?

I provide consulting and training for the companies and their international employees that bridge the gap to successful retention. I have developed a 12-month program called “4 Keys to Successful Retention” targeted at international employees and their accompanying partners.

I support companies throughout the process of attracting, recruiting, onboarding, and retaining their international talents.
