It can sometimes feel like the workplace is Americanising at a fantastic pace. With the near-unstoppable rise of buzzwords – blames 1980s American fat cat culture – increased working hours and the blurring of personal and private lives, European offices can feel a bit more like those across the pond.
However, not everything is different. Despite some trends, such as the sad desk lunch, being similar in both the UK and the US, other trends die hard.
English workers are more likely to take down time but are less likely to have a collaborative relationship with their boss whilst American workers work more closely with their bosses. However, the pay off is that they spend a lot longer in the office.
