A quick read during fika...

Fika: coffee and something sweet is a social institution in Sweden. So ingrained in Swedish culture, that most companies add a clause to contracts, stating that employees are entitled to full paid “Fika-breaks”. Sweden ranks as one of the most competitive countries in the world, with top grades for innovation, sustainability, equality, happiness, and well-being. So don’t underestimate the importance of a “Fika-break”, a pleasant moment for social interaction and creativity.

Team Sweden in South Africa is growing. Two years ago, we were 23 employees, today we are 31. The relations between the people of South Africa and the people of Sweden are strong. Our main focus today is to broaden and deepen our relationships, building bridges with a strong focus on democracy, sustainability, digitalisation, higher education and research. With this newsletter, we want to share with you some highlights from our many activities, hoping that you will find an interesting bite. So welcome to "a quick read during fika".
