Why Millennials Want to Live in Sweden

Why Millennials Want to Live in Sweden

If we had to choose one city that appears to encompass all the hopes and desires of the millennial generation, it would be Stockholm in Sweden. Why? It’s diverse, quirky and full of tech start-ups. More than that, though, it’s a city that is redefining work by flattening hierarchies, prioritising employee well-being, and enshrining flexible working in law.

At Schepens we’re getting to know the millennial generation better, as they’re now in their mid-late 20s and are spreading their wings. The millennials we’ve provided European removals for are confident, hungry for experience, and looking for a different relationship with work than their parents had. Many are heading to Sweden, so we asked them why do millennials want to live in Sweden?


1. I Want to be an Innovator

For my parents’ generation work was all about earning a good living and providing for their family. I admire that, but I’m looking for something different. That’s why the tech scene in Stockholm is so appealing. Right now I’m working on an app that will make life better for people around the world. Because we’re small, I get to work alongside the company founders, so I’m learning from the innovators I want to be.

2. The Workplace is all About Employee Growth

I was offered a job at one of Stockholm’s largest tech industries and I took it because I was intrigued by what I’d heard about Scandinavia. Now I’m totally in love with Stockholm and can’t imagine living anywhere else. It’s like a village that’s a city too, and so beautiful. Work is great, employees matter, there’s people from all over the world and employee growth is baked in to company policy.

3. You’re Encouraged to Take Risks

The thing I enjoy most about working for a start-up in Stockholm is that I’m actively encouraged to be creative and take risks with my work. It makes me feel respected, an integral part of the team. Since I started here I’ve grown as a person and feel more confident experimenting and pitching ideas. Now I feel that I’m on my way to being someone who can make a difference in the world.

4. I Planned to Stay for 6 Months, I’ve Been Here 3 Years

Working in Sweden was the adventure I’d been looking for since uni, and I was keen to experience life in a Scandinavian country. Having grown up in London I thought Stockholm might seem a bit small, but that’s not the case. It’s culturally diverse, like London, and I’ve taken every opportunity to travel in Sweden and Norway. My friendship group is here now and I can’t imagine living anywhere else to be honest.
