The InterNations Expat Insider Survey asked expats around the world to rate their home based on several key factors.
The expats rated Norway highly in terms of career development and were very impressed with the work-life balance.
One expat said: “I like the work-life balance! It has a big impact on me if I have enough time for my family, social life or other activities.”
Nearly 80 percent of expats felt that there was a good work-life balance in Norway, much higher than in other countries.
The world of work in Norway is known for its openness, as everyone can find out how much another person earns.
Anyone can use Norway’s online system to see how much their neighbor, friend or colleague is earning.
The system is designed to increase transparency in the world of work and reduce the pay gap in society.
But while expats were impressed with the working world in Norway, the country sadly fell short when it came to social networking.
Nearly 80 percent of expats in Norway felt they could express themselves and their opinions openly.
Norway was also highly rated when it came to its natural environment, with almost 100 percent of expats positive about it.
The majority of expats live in Oslo, the Norwegian capital, just a short flight from the UK.
Other popular destinations include Bergen, Trondheim and Stavanger, while others may choose to live further north.
