Strong professionalism combined with a focus on well-being and presence has paid off for Delegate.

Copenhagen, 17 March 2022:
The sky is the limit for Delegate. The IT consulting house has just been recognised as the Best IT Workplace in Denmark. This is the current apex of the fantastic development Delegate has been through since it was founded 16 years ago.
The recognition comes from the global consulting and analysis company Great Place to Work, which has placed Delegate at the peak of IT workplaces with 50-499 employees.
“Of course, we are extremely proud of being recognised as the Best IT Workplace in Denmark, and what makes me more happy than anything is that we have managed to stick to our values, while we have developed so significantly in recent years” says Jakob Schou, CEO at Delegate.
Delegate has grown steadily since it was founded with four employees back in 2006. At the beginning of 2021, the consulting house had 145 employees, and today it is close to reaching a milestone of 200 “Delegaters“. At the same time, several companies have been acquired in recent years, and Delegate has crossed the border and become part of the large international Broad Horizon organisation based in the Netherlands.
Jakob Schou points to Delegate’s continuous focus on professionalism, presence, and employee well-being as crucial to its success in growing so significantly and in attracting and retaining talented employees in an industry characterised by a fierce battle for the best minds. Since 2013, Delegate has been in the top 3 among IT companies on the Great Place to Work list of the best workplaces.
“We have always had an extraordinary focus on the human being in everything we do. We work hard for our customers and to continue our growth, while we prioritize having the best workplace with extensive freedom and flexibility, and where going to work is a source of energy both physically and mentally. Delegate is a bit like a safe family, where we help and acknowledge, but also dare to challenge each other. Being able to maintain that culture is not a given when the company grows, but we have managed to do so, and it is a proof of our special DNA and strong values,” says Jakob Schou.
He predicts that Delegate will continue its journey of growth, and also keep acquiring companies, as long as they share a community of values with Delegate.
Best Workplace in Denmark for Women
In addition to being named Best IT Workplace in Denmark, Delegate has also won the special prize for Best Workplace in Denmark for Women across all industries. One of the reasons for winning thisprize is that Delegate has launched a popular women’s network. Here, female employees can, for example, seek inspiration from each other and discuss academic challenges and career choices.
“To be recognized as the country’s best workplace for women is a great honour, which makes us immensely proud and grateful. We need more diversity in the IT industry overall, not least to ensure a broader recruiting base. We want talented people who dare to think for themselves and have their hearts in the right place, and we want to be the best workplace for all “Delegaters” says CEO at Delegate, Jakob Schou.
