MetadataShow full item record
This Study has been conducted in two different departments of two different companies in Stavanger, with a strong international work force. The research question intended to find answers to the following: “In what way and to what extent do foreign workers feel discriminated against their fellow Norwegians?”. This working population, who has not yet been in the centre of academic research; has become an important work task force and is, therefore, critical to understand their daily working challenges and how they perceive them. This study demonstrates that in this cohort majority of the international participants do feel discriminated at work in when it comes to promotions are diminished when compared to their Norwegians colleagues. The different discrimination situations are specially related to the lack of proficiency in the native language, and to gender related issues. These workers state that in order to achieve a better job position they would have to terminate their services at the companies they are working for.
