Hierarchy

Hierarchy

The Scandinavian workplace culture is based on a mix of teamwork and individual responsibility, where each role in the group is viewed as equally important, and consensus is generally central to decision-making. This kind of structure relies on each team member showing mutual respect and responsibility for their individual tasks.

Personal life

personal life

Scandinavian companies are commonly known for prioritizing an employees’ private life, driven by the philosophy that happy, healthy employees are more likely to be productive and efficient. By being valued as individuals, staff can do a better job and feel more motivated in their everyday working lives and beyond.

Inclusive and forward-thinking

Nordic countries are also known for acknowledging and valuing the importance of gender equality and enforcing trust and honesty in the workplace. As one of the world’s most innovative nations, Sweden has invented the modern seatbelt, safety matches, the pacemaker, recent innovations include Spotify, Skype, and more.

Sweden is the third-largest country in the EU, with major metropolitan centers such as the capital, Stockholm, as well as Malmö and Gothenburg. Proudly multicultural, rich in diversity, and with a flourishing business environment, Sweden is often associated with progressive politics and generous social benefits: and there’s also IKEA, Zlatan Ibrahimović and ABBA, of course.

Family benefits

Family benefits

Sweden is known for prioritizing personal aspects of life in its labor laws. Other benefits include the receipt of compensation for lost income when missing work to take care of a sick child. Parents are also entitled to 480 days of paid leave per child, monthly child support, the right to work part-time, and a father’s right to take ten days of leave in connection to childbirth.

Healthcare

Healthcare

Sweden offers a high-quality and affordable public healthcare system that is among the world’s best. It’s mainly government-funded and decentralized, and although private healthcare also exists, the state pays for up to 97% of medical costs. Social insurance also helps with sickness, disability, childbirth, and retirement. Dental and healthcare are free up until 18 years of age.
