Hiring in Norway

You’ll know Norway for its fjords, mountains and proximity to the Arctic Circle, but this Scandinavian nation of just over four million people has a few tricks up its sleeve that you may not know about.

One of Europe’s most developed nations, Norway has slowly become one of the richest, happiest, most productive, and most prosperous nations on earth. Norway’s economy is predominantly service-based, but natural resources like petroleum and gas have made Norway into a welfare state with vast financial reserves.

Ranking first on multiple measures of citizen happiness and only finishing second to Luxembourg in terms of GDP per capita, Norwegians enjoy some of the best employment practices, fantastic gender parity in the workplace and extensive employment laws, but also employment culture.

Hiring in Norway is popular for overseas businesses thanks to Norway’s highly-skilled, highly educated, and often multi-language workforce (Norwegian, English and sometimes Swedish or another European language), as well as relaxed international business regulations and ease of doing business.
