Norwegians value work-life balance and so long working weeks are not common. This concept is baked into Norway’s employment laws.
A typical working week is no more than 37.5 hours, often with an early finish on a Friday. Hours are flexible although most workplaces will have set core hours.
Part-time employment is common and often quoted in percentage terms. For example, someone working ‘60%’ will probably work on three days per week. A 50% contract will likely be 2.5 working days, or 3.5-4 hours per day every day.
