Brilliantly connected for business and life
We know that there's a lot to consider when choosing the right place to grow your company.
Companies investing in Scotland are attracted by our skilled workforce, our universities, our well connected transport infrastructure, affordable staffing costs and the chance to work with experienced supply chains across a wide range of sectors.
But we know that there's more to life in Scotland than work.
In fact, in 2016, an EU index comparing all Europe's regions found that Scotland has the best quality of life in the UK.
That index measured factors such as health, safety, tolerance, access to education and personal rights across 37 regions.
A great place to live and work
Even then, it doesn't tell the whole story about what Scotland has to offer.
From hauntingly beautiful scenery to a rich and fascinating history, from modern, cosmopolitan cities to outdoor adventures within easy reach, Scotland has it all.
As Mike Polson of international law firm Ashurst, says:
"Within half an hour you can be away from the demands of the office and feel very, very away."
It's little wonder that Scotland has inspired so many artists and writers over the years, from Robert Burns to JK Rowling.
Culture continues to be important today and every year we welcome the world to the Edinburgh Festivals, a unique celebration of the arts.
But there's fun to be had throughout the year. Nigel Chadwick of Stream Technologies says:
"I'll go out with the crew for a few beers. Glasgow has some very good places for a night out."
The right choice for your investment
Competitive salaries, affordable living costs and iconic cultural events and sporting opportunities on your doorstep.
It's little wonder Scotland continues to perform so well in the EY Attractiveness Survey, attracting record numbers of FDI projects in 2016.
Your staff will love life in Scotland. And that can only be good news for your business.
