12.08.21 Nordic Sustainable Economy: Happiness and Trust in Private and Business Life
The Nordic countries are at the global forefront in terms of social trust. It contributes to the health and development of the economy, individuals and society as a whole. The greater the level of social trust, the less need there is to spend the state’s money on control mechanisms and the more prepared people are to pay taxes and do their bit for society in other ways. Companies in the region know as well how valuable satisfied workers are, and have started creating happy workplaces.
