Norwegians at work are preoccupied by equality and little hierarchical levels. Any person can address the managers and often all the employees have a say in the final decisions in the companies. Cooperation and democracy are an important factor at work, and in order to succeed with an assignment in Norway, it is important to adapt and understand the way of operating at work.

In general, all offices in Norway are open from 8 am to 4 pm, and there is a half an hour lunch break around noon.

In general, the Norwegians are very informal and usually address people by their first names. They take their pride in being honest and sincere, and punctuality is very important for Norwegians.
