150 expats registered for free workshop on performing in the Dutch high tech work culture
On the 13th of November our partner ‘Settels Savenije & Friedrich’ organised a knowledge session on how to successfully perform in the Dutch high tech work culture. This free workshop by Jaco Friedrich in the TAQ building at Strijp-T even got fully booked. The next one is already scheduled and open for registration.
Dutch work culture
If you’re new to Holland, a lot of things may be different from what you’re used to in the workplace. For example, Dutch colleagues expect you to always say what you think – even if it means contradicting your boss. And you can expect them to comment on your work, too. Dutch jobs come with a lot of freedom – and a lot of responsibility, right from the start. What’s the best way to handle that? And all those seemingly endless meetings – how do you ever get things done? How do you move decisions in the right direction, when it’s unclear who’s in charge of making them?
In 2018 Jaco developed the training ‘How to successfully perform in the Dutch high tech work culture‘. It is intende for non-Dutch technology professionals working with Dutch colleagues. You’ll learn the history behind the Netherlands’ unique approach to work, and why it’s a plus in the technology industry. You’ll also practice the concrete day-to-day skills you need to survive – and thrive. The next edition will take place in Eindhoven on 17 & 18 January 2019.
Jaco decided to organise some free knowledge sessions together with the Holland Expat Center South, to introduce the training. The next session will take place on the 24th of January 2019. Registration is required, so please register here.
