Introduction to Danish work culture for French newcomers in Denmark

Over the years, the Danish-French Chamber of Commerce has developed a double expertise both in welcoming French newcomers in the Danish business world / job market and in decoding Danish-French intercultural issues.

Based on this experience and on the expertise of its network, the Danish-French Chamber of Commerce has created an introduction training to the Danish work culture. It is tailored for French newcomers in Denmark and aims at bringing participants the basics of the Danish work culture and at developing their ability to interact with Danes in professional situations.

Public:  French expats living in Denmark for less than one year and their spouses.


Provide participants a better understanding of the Danish society and work culture and thus help them to develop their intercultural skills in a Danish work environment.
