Happiness at work: Lessons we can learn from Denmark's work culture
Denmark is a small country made up of 5.5 million inhabitants and yet, despite its size, it often makes the headlines. More recently "hygge", a Danish philosophy for a happier life, has taken the UK by storm. Let's not forget about Lego, Mærsk, Velux or Skype, iconic symbols of Danish pride. Despite the 2008 economic crisis, the Danish economy is flourishing. The unemployment rate is at 4.2%, purchasing power is strong and Denmark's security system protects its inhabitants. Despite 113 days of rain every year and winter days with only 7 hours of daylight, the Danish are always at the top of the charts when it comes to being the happiest in the world. To add to all this, Denmark is also one of the top countries for entrepreneurship.
