Norwegian Business Culture
NORWEGIAN BUSINESS CULTURE
Norway is very non-hierarchical in its approach to business structure. Norway’s business culture is quite informal, and follows the egalitarian principles. There are equal opportunities in the workplace, and many women occupy senior business positions. Hand in hand with this egalitarian approach goes an openness of communication and freedom of information. Managers are expected to act more as coaches and facilitators that as paternalistic, authoritarian figures.
