Work mobility in Sogn og Fjordane

Are there differences in career development in rural areas compared to the big cities? What do these differences imply? Research on regional development have a tendency to emphasise the negative sides of rural employment. Could it also be that in thinner business environments you will have broader assignment portfolios and closer contact with management and authorities, making the way towards a positive career development shorter?

There has so far been little research on rural working life and careers. Sparebankstiftinga has asked VF to give a knowledge base on the theme and to conduct a questionnaire on working life and career opportunities among employees in businesses in Sogn og Fjordane.
