Talent Attraction Breakfast


Access to talent is essential for companies in the Oslo region, and the competition between companies, cities, and regions is increasing across the world. How is Norway staying competitive for the attraction of talent and are we as welcoming as we should be?

You are invited to the "Talent Attraction Breakfast - The good and the bad for talent relocation to Oslo", hosted by the Oslo Region Alliance and Oslo Business Region, where we will spotlight the bureaucratic, political, and practical challenges related to international talent attraction and retention. The event will be streamed in case you can’t attend (registration in the same link).
