Let’s talk about work! What do you think the working culture is like in Germany? Hard working and efficient?

What I love about German work culture is that work-life balance is generally treasured and seen as important. People are much more likely to stick to their working hours compared to other countries and annual leave can be generous.

In this article, we’re talking about everything German work culture. Even if you never plan to work in Germany, this is quite interesting!

In the video below, you’ll find out all the basics of German work culture from the hours they work to gender pay gaps. I am jealous of their annual leave entitlements!

Other than the gender pay gap, it seems like Germany would be a great place to work. I’m not sure why you need to print much anymore though!

It also mentions the German concept of Feierabend which you can learn more about here. I think this is a concept we should all adopt!

I hope you enjoyed this video and learned something new about Germany.
