Good work culture = good business
The article is about how work culture explains Norwegian industrial success. Specially related to the three large-scale battery cell factories who are announced in Norway.
- As a high-cost country, the Norwegian process industry is at a relative disadvantage when it comes to wage costs. Therefore, we have been forced to become world leaders in productivity, quality, and competence, which is what has made Norwegian industry one of the cleanest and most efficient in the world, Rieber-Mohn says.
Focus on individual engagement

It has to do with a work culture focusing on individual engagement and motivation that makes the most of the skills, experience and knowledge of every worker, says Kåre-Bjarte Bjelland, Director of Strategy and Communication in Eramet Norway to the Explorer.
