デンマーク企業の魅力とは？Danish Companies – Attractive Work Environment
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.
In order to maintain a prober work life balance, people in Denmark have up to 5 weeks of holiday and take 2-3 week of consecutive holiday. In the same way, it is inthe Japanese affiliates strongly encouraged to take holidays, the same applies for maternity/child-care leaves.
At the beginning of the year, many Danish people plan their holidays. People consider taking holiday as necessary to refresh and release themselves from the stress of work. This leads to efficiency, which as a result can be seen in the high productivity rate measured in GDP per hour worked. So, in order to maintain a prober WLB (Work Life Balance), people in Denmark have minimum 5 weeks of holiday and take 2-3 week of consecutive holiday. Based on this ideology, it is in the Japanese affiliates strongly encouraged to take holidays, the same applies for maternity/child-care leaves.
It is true that in Japan you have to prioritize customers and customs in the industry, which makes it difficult for employees in the Japanese affiliates to take long holidays similar to the employees in headquarters. However, experience shows us, that many Danish affiliates provides an environment where employees are encouraged to value family, health and WLB, by taking holidays.
