What does the life in an Irish Company look like?

Working Hours Per Week

In Ireland, the stuatutary working hours per week is the highest in the the European Union with 48 hours per week. The country where the number of hours per week is the lowest is France with 35 hours per week.


Hierarchy

Whatever they are managers or just employees, people in a company use to call each other by his firstname. So, this can not reveal the hierachical positions as it is the case in France. Generally, We can’t guess who supervise who unless we know it. It is important to be well-informed about the personnal structure of the company before negotiating with it or try to find out an organization chart.

Negotiation

A business card , translated in English, is a good way to begin.

It is appropriate to establish good relationships with the negotiating partner. Talking about the weather is well perceived. A silence is impolite as it can be a sign of coldness, antipathy.

A foreign businessman can’t expect to make a deal in a hurry : Irish companies trust more easily their network of contact than a Foreigner and an unknown company. It takes time to be trusted.

The Cultural differences

English is the only language used during a negotiation. Gaelic is not used, however it is well-perceived to have a business card translated also in Gaelic.
Generally, Irish businessman don’t manage to talk foreign languages. They won’t be willing to speak in another language.

The Casual day

This is a something very significant in Irish culture that doesn’t exist in France. You must be aware of that not to be surprised.
Every Friday, People in the irish company wear casual clothes such as tracksuit. Uniforms and ties are not well-perceived on this special day of the week.

Salut, lilac

Here is your text with some corrections. I included yannloic's corrections so you could see the whole thing at once. As for the spelling of "organization," using the 'z' is the American spelling; with an 's' as yannloic suggests, it's the British spelling. So either one is correct.
