ABBA and Ikea – ask most people about Sweden and those are the first things that they will think of. Dig a little deeper though, and there is so much more to this Scandinavian giant. Stockholm is a cool, urban capital offering culture, entertainment and a range of architecture, making it a great place to work.
Sweden is valued for its stability, its economic outlook, and its excellent infrastructure. The lifestyle in Sweden is generally pleasant, well ordered, and safe. There is a rich cultural life, an excellent health-care system, and all the amenities necessary for comfortable living.
Swedish workers enjoy one of the world’s highest standards of living with lengthy vacations, and an abundance of leisure and family time.
Sweden has four seasons where the temperatures can variate from +25C down to -20C depending on where in the country you are. In Stockholm where the office is located the temperature in winters gets down to approx. -14C.
Swedes usually eat a proper meal both for lunch and dinner. They’re also known for their ”fika” traditions. Fika is equal to a coffee break that’s more about socialising than drinking coffee. And something sweet is also welcome. Swedes love fika and it’s common to have Friday fika or afternoon fika at work.
Swedish. Many people find it hard to learn and practice Swedish, not necessarily because of the language itself, but the fact that most swedes speak English fluently.
