Office Behaviour and Etiquette Around the World

Office Behaviour and Etiquette Around the World

Heading off to work abroad is undoubtedly exciting. You get to meet new people, experience life in a different country and put your language skills to good use – as well as gaining new ones of course! But one thing you might not have considered before you go is how the working day itself varies from country to country.

For example, did you know that:

  • In China and Mexico, the working day is 10 hours long?
  • In France, lunches can often run to two hours (and often include a glass or two of wine)?
  • In Japan, taking a day off sick is seen as disrespectful to your colleagues?

Whitefields Document Storage have done some research and put together an infographic showing how the working day and office rituals differ in several countries around the world. 

So, whether you’re off to work in Italy (don’t forget to grab an espresso on the way to work!) or India (expect a 2-hour commute), you’ll know exactly what to expect from your working day.
