Stavanger Chamber International

Stavanger Chamber International is a  support program run by the Stavanger Chamber of Commerce . Our goal is to assist newcomers and their families adapt to Norwegian life in the best possible way. By providing the right support in the early stages of relocating, both employee and company will benefit greatly. The Stavanger Chamber of Commerce offers a membership in SCI for all its Chamber members.

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. Adapting to change is often a challenge and the expatriate and family can often find themselves struggling with making the necessary adjustment. During these times, the expatriate normally finds themselves managing the cultural adjustment process alone - and having a difficult time doing so. Experience shows that timing is important, and that the first 2 to 6 months are crucial.

The SCI membership includes seminars, social events, networking and a monthly newsletter. We provide spousal support in regards to career advice should this be required.We arrange monthly Living and Working in the Stavanger Region Course days which is a 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.
