SWEDISH WORK ENVIRONMENT (SWE)


Often newcomers arrive in Sweden after having worked in very different cultures. Because Sweden's work culture is quite unique, there is often a sense of confusion, especially when it comes to the unwritten social norms and codes. Through this course, we aim to empower participants with this knowledge so that they are better equipped to thrive in a new work environment. The course covers topics like Flat hierarchy, Leadership, communication and management skills, social etiquettes etc. 


 The course is divided into five workshops (4 hours in a day): 


1) Organizational Core Values

2) Leadership, Management and Communications 

3) Adaptation to the Swedish Work Environment

4) Rights, Obligations and Responsibilities

5) First Day at Work 


The above are part of 'Swedish Work Environment' course but are also available as stand-alone workshops which run for 4 hours (including breaks) or as a  single lecture (1-1.5 hours)

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 an external and a local perspective by involving guest speakers and volunteers from the local community.  

Gender Balance

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