Work it out!
Most employees in the Nordics are autonomous. They like to do their job, independently. Without much control, supervision or interference. This is reinforced by the fact that job responsibilities are always defined and clear. So there is no ambiguity as to what is expected from any employee to deliver.
Bosses and managers are comfortable
with that. They don’t mind their team members to work in the quiet
. There is again a sense of trust
. They trust their people that they will do their job and deliver. Although the Nordic working environment is relaxed and all but controlled, deadlines
are deadlines. Not to mention that showing up
for a meeting in time (i.e. a couple of minutes before the start, not later, not much earlier too) is greatly appreciated
