Welcoming program

Adapting to change is often a challenge and the expatriate and family can often find themselves struggling with making the necessary adjustment.

In this climate of global business and mobility, companies invest substantial amounts of money in re-locating families and individuals. In order to achieve the best possible return on this investment it is imperative that the expatriate and family integrate into their new environment and find their place in the new society. Experience shows that timing is important, and that the first 2 to 6 months are crucial.

 

Stavanger Chamber International (SCI) is a support program run by the Stavanger Chamber of Commerce. By providing the right support in the early stages of relocating, both employee and company will benefit greatly. 

- Our goal is to assist newcomers and their families adapt to Norwegian life in the best possible way says Randi Mannsåker at Stavanger Chamber of Commerce. 

 

Events and seminars

SCI provides spousal support in regard to career advice should this be required. SCI arrange Living and Working in the Stavanger Region Course days.

- Our Living and Working course day is program covering Geography, History, Politics, Culture, Norwegian Characteristics, Daily life, Safety, Transport, a tour of Stavanger and lunch. We also provide half day Cultural Awareness seminars focusing on creating an international ‘We’ Culture within the workplace, Mannsåker explains. 

 

SCI arrange social and outdoor activities, cross culture training, events regarding living in Norway (tax, housing, pensions etc.), education opportunities and International Top Leader Forum. All meetings are open, however there is a member/non-member payment system in place. 

 

- We invite all companies to join the Stavanger Chamber International program says Mannsåker.
