It is no coincidence that internationally active companies have settled here too: They need employees that not only work hard but can also communicate in a number of languages. Companies appreciate the friendliness, reliability, and linguistic talents of the people in Solothurn:
These companies require highly qualified employees that they find easily in and around the Canton of Solothurn thanks to our excellent education system. Zurich, Basel, and Berne are an easy commute to and from Solothurn. Solothurn is also an attractive location for foreign employees. Children of expatriate families receive an excellent international education at the two international schools in Solothurn: The International School Solothurn (ISSO) in Solothurn and the SIS Swiss International School near Olten.
