The Norwegian Julebord


Illustrations: "The Social Guidebook to Norway"

The first time it happened to me

I did not know how to react

My Norwegian colleagues and boss lined up

 one after the other

 to tell me how good of a job I was doing.

I had never really been told that I was doing a good job in Norway

Nor had I been told that I was doing a bad job

I was actually wondering if any of my work was at all noticed

Or if anyone cared

But today it is Julebord

Julebord is the Norwegian "Feedback Day" !

 

You get the feedback for the whole year that passed

It is very pragmatic

Very efficient

But do not talk about it when you get back to work on the Monday morning

What happens at the Julebord

Stays there

 

God jul!
