Denmark has been ranked as the happiest nation in the world. The country has a high level of social trust. They trust each other and trust their institutions like the government, the monarchy, the hospitals, and the police. People here are assumed to be honest unless proven otherwise. These values of trust and community are deeply embedded in Danish culture and society and have their roots in Danish history.
According to the World Happiness Report, Denmark always comes in among the top three happiest countries in the world. According to WHR, happiness is closely linked to social equality and community spirit – and Denmark does well on both.
Most of Danes will tell you that they are happy to pay taxes because they can see what they get in return. Most healthcare in Denmark is provided with no fee to the patient. University students pay no tuition and receive a grant to help cover expenses while studying. Childcare is subsidized. And the elderly receive pensions and are provided with care helpers who visit them at home.
In Denmark, honesty is expected, and corruption in business or among public servants is very rare. The relatively high level of safety in Denmark compared to many other countries means that Danish children enjoy much more freedom and independence than their counterparts elsewhere in the world. You can see children as young as 8-9 years old travel alone in public transport while other passengers are keeping an eye for them. The safety in this country is high, you can actually walk or ride a bicycle in Denmark any time of the day.
The country knows the importance of work-life balance. They have the “hygge” concept in life. It does not have an exact translation because it’s hard to, but it’s most likely taking time to spend good things in life and take yourself away from the daily rush. Hygge is about enjoying the simple and good parts of life together with people you care about.
Workindenmark is your shortcut to start a life and have an opportunity in Denmark. If you see your future in DK and imagining yourself working in DK, our Lisbon Tech job Fair is your easiest way to meet the team and learn about your job opportunities in Denmark.
