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.

デンマークでは誰もが長期休暇を取得するため、日本の職場でも有給休暇や育児休業などを取得することは当たり前のこととされていいます。

デンマーク人には、年初に一年間の長期休暇や仕事のスケジュールを立てる人も。重要なポジションにある人ほど、この傾向が強いようです。オン・オフのメリハリをつけ、オフには充分にリフレッシュし、職場に戻って精力的に仕事をします。効率性や生産性を重視し、会議の際も、最初に流れやゴールを決めます。目的のない会議をだらだらと続けるようなことはありません。

お客様や業界の慣行もあるため、日本法人の全員が毎年長期休暇を取得できるわけではありませんが、日系企業と比べると有給休暇の消化率はかなり高いはずです。

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.
