デンマーク企業の魅力とは?Danish Companies – Attractive Work Environment

デンマークにはグローバルにビジネスを展開している企業が沢山あり、そのうちの多くが日本にも進出しています。ここでは働く環境に焦点を当てて、デンマーク企業の日本法人の特徴をご紹介します。もちろんそれぞれの企業で違いはありますが、多くの企業に共通点が見られます。

In the following, you will find information about the Japanese affiliates to the many Global Danish companies, and how they have implemented the Danish roots in Japan.

We have collected examples of work environment that is very common in Denmark but not in Japan. This does not mean that all the Japanese affiliates of Danish companies provide exactly the same environment as stated below but these can be observed in many of them.

デンマーク企業は、フラットな組織(階層が少なく、トップマネジメントとの距離が近い組織)であることが多く、オープン・ドア・ポリシーも定着しています。透明性のある風通しのよい雰囲気が特徴です。

これは意思決定の仕方にも表れており、相手が上司であれ、トップマネジメントであれ、自分の考えは率直に伝え、議論する文化が根付いています。上司も、部下からの意見に耳を傾け、しっかり議論します。

関係者間でコンセンサスを取りながら物事を進めるため、決定に時間がかかることもしばしば。また、ベストを目指して議論を重ねながら案や計画を修正していくため、「あれ?最初の話と違うものになっている」ということも。ステークホルダー全員が議論に参加しているため、結果として皆が納得できる成果が出やすいとも言えるはずです。

Organizations in Denmark usually have a horizontal structure rather than a vertical/hierarchical structure (fewer layers to the top management). Commonly implemented is the“Open Door Policy”. It characterizes the transparent and open culture of the Danish workplace.

One of the flat organizations trademark, can be found in the decision-making process. Employees are not afraid of challenging and discussing ideas with any stakeholders, regardless of the position. Managers listen to their employees and thoroughly discuss when they have different views.

As a result, decision-making processes can take longer than expected (e.g. It takes time to reach consensus among multiple stakeholders). Yet at the same time, people know that there is no such thing as a “perfect” plan. Therefore the company strives to be flexible and adjust their plans whenever necessary as the project proceeds.Outcome may be slightly different from what was originally projected, but all the stakeholders would agree that it was the best outcome as they would all have been equally involved in the decision-making and modifying process.
