Living in the Netherlands

The Netherlands is a pleasant country to live in. A country in which it is possible to pursue your ambitions, both on a personal and professional level. 

With a diverse and liberal society, inclusive to internationals that visit and decide to stay, and a thriving business climate that puts innovation front and centre, the Netherlands keeps demonstrating why it's such a great country to live in. Most internationals appreciate living in the Netherlands because of its high living standards, excellent health care, perfect roads, good public transport and attractive work-life balance.

Excellent work-life balance  
The Netherlands is a consensus-based, diverse and prosperous country with great facilities for its inhabitants. Moreover, the work-life balance in the Netherlands is very good. A four-day workweek is popular and vacation time is adequately paid for. As the amount and quality of leisure time is important for a person’s overall well-being, it is not strange that the Dutch overall are pretty happy with their lives. This – alongside professional growth and income – has resulted in a high level of satisfaction and a sixth place in the World Happiness Report 2020.

Great quality of life  
Furthermore, companies and organisations in the Netherlands offer their employees plenty of opportunities for personal growth and developing their skills. Also, at the many innovative and industry leading tech and IT- companies located in the Netherlands. Employers encourage you to make the most of your potential and are willing to provide resources for further professional growth. Average net income is internationally competitive, especially compared to most Western European countries.

“I like living here. The Netherlands is a very multicultural society and I believe that Dutch people have a strong set of basic values and do a lot to protect those values. What I notice is that people accept different opinions or different manners as long as you don’t bother others.”
