BOARD WORK IN PENSION FUNDS

Purpose

The purpose of Board work in Pension Funds is to give local politicians on these boards a solid basis for the work in the boardroom and how to develop and operate efficiently. Both in the case of joint-stock companies, 60-companies and other company forms. The boards have an important role in ensuring well-run companies that can live up to the owners’ purpose with the company.

Board members must for instance handle owners wishes, lead large organizations with many employees and keep an eye on customer needs at the same time. The course is being taught on the learnings of precisely the situations and dilemmas that politicians on the board of these companies will come into contact with.
