Welcome to Norway

Norway is famous for its deep coastal fjords and beautiful nature. The scenery is breathtaking pretty much anywhere and people are friendly and warm hearted. Afraid to be looked upon as an alien? Don´t worry. Our country is more diverse than many expect, with over half a million immigrants from Europe and beyond, making up 1/3 of the capital Oslo’s population.

Norway is the third best country for work-life balance in Europe. Important fact: Norwegians don´t schedule meetings after 3pm on Friday, and if you do, no-one will show up at the meeting.

You have a lot of alternatives to enjoy your day after work in Norway. Our nature is truly beautiful and we love outdoor life. Our popular saying is: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing”. Norway has won the largest number of Gold, Silver and Bronze medals of all countries in the Winter Olympics. But we also have nice summers with temperatures up to 25 to 30 degrees Celsius.

Your chances of getting a decent coffee break is good: Norwegians are among the world’s biggest consumers of coffee with 10 kg per person yearly.

Living and working in Norway

The government distributes resources to allow all inhabitants access to basic goods like housing, food, medical assistance and schooling. The living expenses are quite high, especially housing expenses are high in the big cities, but this is for a large part compensated for by relatively high wages.

Barona Norway is approved as a revised employer by the Norwegian Federation of Service Industries and Retail Trade, which for example guarantees that you´ll get the right pay in right time, a waterproof employment contract where health and safety, working hours, pay, compensations and all other necessary aspects in your employment are covered.
