Our friends in Oslo Business Region and Osloregionen recently asked our very own talent for places expert Morten King-Grubert to do a walk and talk reflecting on the very insteresting 2021 Oslo State of the City report. Main question: Does Oslo has the ingredients to cater to talent in a post-Covid world?
We believe the reflections and leassons learned from us at Future Place Leadership could be relevant to places across the Nordics and Europe interested in the human capital agenda. Thus happy to share.
Some key points:
So dear Oslo:
Opportunity exist as demand is being pushed towards smaller cities with a higher quality of life: Big enough to matter with sustainable, healthy and lively urban city living with remoteness at the doorsteps from co-creation space to nature.
In other words: the Nordic way of the ‘15 minute’ city model that combines medium density with high amenity can also work to Oslo’s advantage. Combined with the development of being a frequently recognised as leader globally in EVs, software, automation, green finance and sectors, where I as global talent gain from relocation to Oslo.
We believe Oslo has a chance to win. And the time is now to get to work. Your competitors are already out there positioning themselves.
If you have any questions about the Oslo State of the City report, get in touch with Morten King-Grubert.
