#8 Dutch work-life

The Netherlands is one of the most interesting societies in Europe. Known for tulips, cheese, windmills, wooden shoes and the bicycle. The economy is diverse, innovative and always changing. But work isn’t everything … The 4 day week was offered to staff to save money during the recession of the 1990’s. Since then it has spread to become common practice. Not everyone does of course but everyone does have a minimum 4 weeks of holiday a year. Making Dutch society the best place on the planet for work-life balance.
