For the last 18 years, global human resources consulting firm Mercer has released a Quality of Living Survey. The purpose of the survey is to help large companies fairly evaluate employee compensation while on international assignments.
The list provides anyone whose company missed the whole “fair compensation based on where you live” memo — like this woman in San Francisco — with something to dream for. If you are happy in your job, thin of this visual tour like a roadmap to inspire all of your political panic/wanderlust-driven fantasies.
Mercer evaluates 440 locations around the world based on 39 factors which are grouped in 10 categories. The 10 categories include; political and social environment, economical environment, socio-cultural environment, medical and health considerations, schools and education, public services and transportation, recreation, consumer goods, housing and natural environment. The result is a ranking of 230 destinations.
We’re going to take a closer look at the top 10…while packing our things.
