“I am working with a number of Danish engineers. I have noticed a difference between the Danish attitude to work / life balance compared to the UK approach. The Danes places much greater value on their own time and do not let work interfere with their personal life / holiday plans. This created minor difficulties for one task as the Danish engineers involved were not prepared to work overtime to meet a very tight deadline, whereas the UK engineers were, and as a consequence we had to picked up some of the work that should have been completed by the Danish engineers. “
