There is more than one reason why expanding to The Netherlands can benefit your company. We believe that moving your staff to one of the happiest countries in the world is most certainly one of them.

Dutch happiness survey

In the 2020 World Happiness Report (Helliwell et al., 2020), The Netherlands rated the 6th happiest country in the world, of a total of 153 surveyed countries.

Happiness is quite a complex phenomenon to measure. Everyone experiences happiness in a different way. We have named just a few factors that positively affect the overall happiness on the Dutch work floor.

Working like the Dutch

The Dutch are known for having a no-nonsense and down-to-earth attitude. They appreciate you “just being your own authentic self”. This stimulates an open work culture where communication flows freely between every layer of the organization’s hierarchy.

Living like the Dutch

The work-life balance tends to be one of the Dutch’ highest priorities. Having a successful career is important and efficiency is highly valued, but this shouldn’t come at the cost of one’s free time. The Dutch make sure to save enough time off for their families, friends and hobbies.

Socializing like the Dutch

Even though the Dutch are dedicated workers, they certainly do appreciate socializing with colleagues and friends after hours. This among other things includes our Friday afternoon drinks with the occasional bitterbal and kaasstengel. This is a common occurrence in a lot of Dutch businesses.
