4,5 hours course for International Employees
Wednesday February 6th at 9 AM to 1:30 PM
Would you play chess or poker without learning the rules of the game first? Working with Norwegians without understanding the Norwegian way may be quite like playing chess or poker without knowing the rules. Norwegian workplaces are driven by a set of rules which are very different from those in other western cultures, often leading to confusion and misunderstandings. This seminar will address these rules.
This course is suitable for all international employees, whether you have just arrived in Norway or if you have been here for some time.
NB! Food will be served at this seminar.
