Along with a high standard of living, Norway offers a good work-life balance, public safety and a clean environment.
Excellent health care and higher education are available to all. Norway is known worldwide as a pioneer in gender equality, and provides generous family leave and universal, low-cost childcare.
Norwegian workers are trustworthy and well-educated with a strong sense of autonomy.
Exceptional critical thinking skills enable them to work independently and solve problems. As a result, companies can employ fewer workers in Norway, which increases efficiency and decreases payroll costs.
As one example, Norwegian industry uses parallel lines, in which only one crew is used to run two lines. Many companies therefore find that the Norwegian workforce costs much less than they assumed.
