When the OECD ranked nations based on work-life balance last year, Denmark came out on top.
The work culture in Denmark is similar to that in the rest of Scandinavia. Flexible work schedules are common and paid vacation time is ample.
Danish workers average 33 hours a week and have a right to at least five weeks of paid vacation each year.
Meanwhile, Denmark's labor laws are based on a concept called "flexicurity" -- a unique model in which it's easy for employers to either hire or fire workers, but workers are also protected by a generous government safety net. Unemployment benefits can last up to two years.
