Work Life Balance


In Sweden you need to be aware of that people make a clear distinction between work and private life.
Swedes and the Swedish society place a lot of emphasis on maintaining healthy work-live balances, thus improving overall quality of life. Swedes work to live, they don´t live to work. Many Swedes are done with their regular jobs around 5 p.m. Working overtime is not regarded as positive by neither companies and employees. Swedes will start to ask you about your plans for the coming weekend as early as Wednesday afternoon. By Friday lunchtime they have mentally gått för dagen ‘left for the day.’
