Working in Denmark


Danish workplaces are characterised by having a good work-life balance. Many employees work 37 hours a week and have flexible working hours, and everyone is entitled to five weeks of holiday a year. Working conditions are well-organised and for many people issues such as salary, working hours, maternity /paternity leave, labour market pension etc. are agreed on in collective agreements between employers’ associations and trade unions.
