Vladimir has been living and working in the Netherlands since January. Has he noticed any differences between the Netherlands and Russia yet? “Yes, there’s a big difference in the hierarchy. The Dutch way is very flat, and I’m not talking about the landscape! Obviously, there are managers but they’re very approachable. You don’t have a “Big Boss”. You see people, not titles.”
Vladimir points out that we’ve also got a lot in common: “People say the Dutch are very straightforward, or rude even. Russians are the same. They say it like it is. Russians might not look as friendly as the smiley Dutch, but once you get to know them, they’re very warm people too.”
