Cultural Awareness

Overcome cultural obstacles and turn diversity into a strength.

Course: Danish Business Culture

Foreign employees in Denmark frequently find it difficult to navigate their new work culture, primarily because they may have underestimated differences from their own work culture and are hence surprised by them, and secondly because they do not have the tools or knowledge to orientate themselves in the new environment.

Supporting People proposes an eye-opening 3-hour course in English for foreign employees in your company who

  • Are new in Denmark and have started working with Danish colleagues
  • May be in doubt as to how to communicate effectively with peers and managers
  • May feel they are being misunderstood or overlooked
  • Want to get the best out of their experience in a Danish work culture, and hence improve their work performance and get ahead in their career.

The aim of the course

  • To provide tools that help foreigners understand and navigate Danish Business Culture
  • To build confidence in participants and advise them on how to get the most out of their career in Denmark

The content of the course

  • Typical Danish management style
  • Working with colleagues
  • The workplace hierarchy
  • Social life at work

"Around 40-45 % of all relocations to Denmark include moving the family. However, over half of these relocated employees do not stay for the full duration of their contract because the family has difficulties settling in Denmark. For companies, this means extra expense in recruiting and training a new specialist employee, as well as the risk of the project stopping while this takes place."
