How to Work in Denmark: Tips and tricks on the unwritten rules of Danish working culture - also for non-members
Denmark is a wonderful place to work, with high salaries and a great work-life balance. But Danish working culture can be confusing to internationals.
- Why do Danish bosses introduce themselves by first name alone and avoid using their job titles?
- What’s it like for an international to work for a Danish boss who paints a “big picture” but offers few precise instructions about how the job should be done?
- Why is being part of the team so important – and why is it important to take a break from work and enjoy cake (or at least coffee) with your team?
- How is Danish humor used in the office to relieve tension, enforce equality, and sometimes even deliver difficult messages?
