How to Work in Denmark: Tips on Danish working culture for ambitious internationals
Danish working culture can be a bit of a mystery for people who didn’t grow up in Denmark. Learning more about the culture can help achieve your career goals.
- What does the ’flat hierarchy’ mean for you – and for your career ambitions?
- What is Danish humor? Plus, how using “self-irony” can be a great tool in the workplace
- What does a Danish boss expect from a team member? (It’s probably not what your boss wants in your home country)
- What’s the best way to grow your career in Denmark and make Danish business contacts?
- What value do you get from joining a union in Denmark – and how is a union different from an A-kasse?
Equality, trust, directness, good work-life balance: many of us have heard about the basic elements of Danish working culture. But how can an ambitioius international work with these elements to build a successful career in Denmark? Kay Xander Mellish, who has worked at some of the largest corporations in Denmark, will explain how to leverage the most important aspects of Danish working culture in order to succeed in your current job and prepare for your next.
