I was a bit intrigued by this article in DN – the absence or underrepresentation of women in company boards and upper echelons of management is a well-described fact, but that the boards and upper management of the larger Swedish companies should be dominated by Swedes is a bit surprising.
Now, there are some problems in the methodology behind the article, but I don’t think that taxes are that much of a problem (if anything, companies can, and will, just relocate to London). Maybe we are looking at a situation where Swedish companies have more experience with international activities than Danish companies and in that way feel less need to recruit foreign managers or directors.
It is late and I’m more than off to bed, but Nils Lunde usually covers this with regard to “Danish” companies in Politiken. There should be some posts buried in his feed.
