Scandinavian Career Week

 

November 22-26, 2021
online

Scandinavian organizational culture is famous for providing steady employment, good salaries, and positive company culture. Our Scandinavian Career Week provides an excellent opportunity to meet employers from Denmark, Norway and Sweden and see what they have to offer to students looking for employment on the contemporary challenging job market.

We would like to invite all SWPS University students and graduates to participate in the 4th Scandinavian Career Week, organized by the Office of Career Services.

The even twill take place online. Detailed program will be announced soon.

Why should you participate?

The Scandinavian Career Week provides a meeting platform for job-seeking students and graduates, and employers from the Scandinavian countries, who are looking for new talent to join their companies.

The Scandinavian work culture is characterized by a shorter work week, frequent contact with nature, and policies conducive to developing employees’ interests. These aspects of the organizational culture positively impact wellness of employees, which has been especially important during the pandemic. Remote working and uncertain employment prospects have become a part of the “new normal”. On the other hand, working and living in the same space, made many people aware about the importance of work-life balance.

Scandinavian employees score very high on life satisfaction and maintaining a proper work-life balance. What is the reason for such positive results? How can employers ensure wellness of their employees during periods of remote working? In Scandinavia, the work week is shorter than a typical work-week in Poland. This is conducive to employee satisfaction and wellness. Employees have more time to spend with their families, to rest, and devote to their hobbies, which in turn, increases their productivity at work. Another difference between Scandinavia and Poland concerns part-time employment. Close to 20 percent of all working people in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden works part-time. Furthermore, employers approve of flextime with respect to the start and the end of the work day.
