Inn Bergen - at your service

Moving to a foreign country and settling down in a new city becomes much easier when you have someone to help you. Not surprisingly, Bergen is an attractive destination for these many temporary or permanent employees who relocate from other countries. Reasons for this include the booming national economy, in addition to the fact that it is just a great place to live – the United Nations Human Development Report has rated Norway the best place to live for the sixth straight year.

 Surveys conducted by Bergen Chamber of Commerce and Industry shows that there is a great need to recruit qualified personnel to the Bergen region. The Bergen region is the second largest business area in Norway, with a wide variety of industries and services. The companies in the region are attracting the best expertise available form other regions in Norway, and from abroad. This often means relocating international employees. In order to facilitate the conditions for new workers in the Bergen region, the Bergen Chamber of Commerce and Industry established the International Network Bergen (INN Bergen).

Making a Home in Bergen
INN Bergen is a unique concept tailored to meet the needs of the corporations and ease the everyday challenges for families coming to the Bergen Region. INN Bergen offer companies in the Bergen region services relating to the recruitment of foreign labour.

The goal is to support member company activities related to the recruitment process – and once recruited, help the employees to thrive in the Bergen region. The process starts early, with INN Bergen providing assistance and information about Bergen prior to arrival, on arrival and during the integration. The programme includes housing, finding kindergartens or schools, as well as assistance with support immigration papers.

The INN Relocation Program eases the everyday challenges of moving to a foreign country, and enables expatriates and families to adjust more easily to their new environment, thus expatriates also become a more efficient resource for the employer from day one. During the integration the programme arranges language classes, provides info on leisure and activities and social support through meeting place and networking.

Many INN Bergen services are valuable, including the spouse career services, which helps spouses find employment well suited to his or her career path . For INN Bergen, it is important that the entire family feels at home with living and working in Bergen.
