Business Culture in the Netherlands

Dutch Teams

Business relationships in the Netherlands are informal with first name terms being generally used.

Everybody in the team has seemingly similar status and to pretend to be somebody special will result in problems with other members of the team.

When success is achieved, it is important that the success is attributed to the team rather than assumed by any of the individuals within the team.

It is important to be seen by others in the team as professional and diligent – and an important element of this is to be thought of as someone who will honour commitments of whatever nature or size.
