Trust and independence
There is also a high level of trust in Denmark, where one says “a deal is a deal”, and we trust that the other party will accept the mutual agreement. In fact, the flat structure in the work culture is primarily built on trust.
Managers do not micromanage their employees and do not have to ensure that they are doing their job well as they trust that this is the case. Another keyword that can describe the Danish work culture is “independence.”
Danes actually do not like to be led, and prefer to work independently, and employers like the fact that employees are responsible and able to work independently. The relationship between the employer and the employee is built on trust and mutual respect. The employer trusts that the employee will speak up if there is an issue.
