Work Culture World Tour:
The Netherlands

work culture world tour Netherlands

The land is low-lying, the work hierarchy is flat, and the tulips really came from Turkey. Welcome to The Netherlands, a happy, progressive nation that is responsible for churning out tall men and orange carrots.

The Netherlands is the 26th destination on our ’round-the-world video curation tour of work cultures in many nations. We invite you to join us, watch out for us on our social channels (#CultureCoordinates) and let us know what these videos get right-or don’t-about working in different countries.

Enjoy extra cash for holidays, and daddy days…

…and questioning your boss without fear of reprisal
