Morning at the Norwegian Office


Source: "The Loud American: Working with Norwegians"

The modern Norwegian corporate office is beautiful

Open spaces, calm colors, exposed wood, and great coffee machines

There’s a calm and peace found inside the Norwegian office

If you ever want to cause confusion within these walls I recommend this one simple trick

Go around and ask every single person

“How are you doing!?” 

This type of pleasantry might be common in other work cultures

But not in Norway

It’s just better to sit at your desk and not disturb others
