Making friends in Denmark
Kay Xander Mellish is an American who has worked for several large Danish companies and has collected her insights on working culture in Denmark into books, podcasts, and lectures. Here are a few of her tips on making friends in Denmark.
The financial sector has an integration protocol ready for the Ukraine situation
The invasion of Ukraine has given rise to an influx of refugees, which also affects Denmark. The financial sector also has a duty to help solve the problem, and it is already reasonably equipped for this through the protocol on integration of employees with different ethnic backgrounds in the standard collective agreement.

Career and culture
Join Network of International Members (NIM)
NIM connects you and other international employees across the financial sector. It is a network where you will be challenged and inspired, both professionally and personally – and, at the same time, you will have the opportunity to expand your social network.
Working smoothly with your Danish colleagues
Working with Danes has so many advantages, but it can also be tricky for internationals. Danish bosses provide less guidance - and less supervision! - than bosses in many other working cultures. You're often expected to take the initiative and innovate on your own, but also openly admit to mistakes when you've made them. And in Denmark, it's acceptable to politely disagree with your boss.
