THE SWEDISH WORK ENVIRONMENT (SWE)


Newcomers in Sweden often find it challenging to thrive in a Swedish work environment or even find employment and sustain in a workplace. The possible reason that can lead to this is the lack of information on social skills and unwritten codes of the Swedish culture.  Through this course, we aim to empower participants with knowledge and skills on these unwritten codes and norms which will help them thrive in a new work environment.

Trust

We find it absolutely essential to create a safe space and an environment of trust for our participants especially when it comes to topics that are sensitive in nature. We have found our participants talk openly about cultural barriers when they learn that the course environment is a safe space with no room for judgement and bias. 

Eliminating the foreign language effect

Our Workshops are conducted in participants' native language tongue. Why? To eliminate the "Foreign Language Effect", thus delivering optimum outcome.  We have learnt that people operate slightly differently when communicating in foreign language.

Relevant learning environment

We aim to create a relevant learning environment by relating the topics to the participants cultural background and experiences

Local Interactions

 Apart from helping participants relate to concepts through their own cultural lens, we also provide them an external and a local perspective by involving guest speakers and volunteers from Sweden.  

Gender Balance

For all our courses and workshops we ensure that there is a gender balance in our participants, and we also encourage our customers to keep this in mind while selecting participants for any of our courses.
