German in the Netherlands

Overview

Currently, according to the German Chamber of Commerce 71.350, Germans, including 25.000 students, are living in the Netherlands. Some of them have been transferred by the company, others have been moved to the Dutch partner and others remain for personal reasons.

But what also attracts the Germans to the Netherlands is the positive working conditions of the neighboring country.

Working Dutch

Overview

A big plus is the flat hierarchies. In the Netherlands, work is much more informal than in Germany. This can begin with the "you" being offered during a job interview.

In the Netherlands, it is customary for everyone to work in one company, from the secretary to the manager Chef, Even the title "Doctor", applies in the Netherlands only for doctors.

Easy but distant

Overview

However, this casual approach does not mean that you have a personal relationship with the geduzten persons. It is easy to talk about family, holidays and weekends, but while many Germans understand that as a friendship invitation, that does not mean the same thing in the Netherlands:

Although the tone is extremely friendly, the relationship can still be at the business level. On the other hand, Dutch people can keep their reserved Germans at a distance rather than perceive them at a distance. Nevertheless, Germans who have been working together for years still speak with "Mr." and "Mrs." is inconceivable in the Netherlands.

Get to know colleagues: Duty!

Overview

This relaxed approach creates a working atmosphere that is very important in the Netherlands. The weekly "Borrels" contribute to this, as well as employees gathering on a Borrel, usually in a bar or café, drinking a beer together with fried snacks

These borrels often take place on Fridays after work and are a good opportunity to get to know the colleagues better and to exchange informally. So it is the soft skills of the employees, who occupy a high position in the Netherlands, while in Germany, the expertise is still in the first place.

"Let's talk it out"

Overview

In the Netherlands, it is also common for employees to be much more involved in in-house decision-making processes. As a result, many meetings are held in disrepair, trying to reach consensus or negotiate a compromise.

These meetings can sometimes take quite a long time, but everyone is also involved. This may be a bit strange at the beginning, since, even outside the professional field, one is asked for the opinion: Everyone is involved.

Find decisions together!

Overview

This has the consequence that a decision is found together and is borne by all of them. Of course, it depends on what kind of decisions and what operation it is.

Authoritarian bosses, who like to have the sole say, are also available, as in all countries of the world.
