bernaBern and Copenhagen are the most liveable locations in the world for European expatriates. This was one of the conclusions of the latest Location Ratings survey for expatriate living conditions published by ECA International, the world’s leading provider of knowledge, information and software for the management and assignment of employees around the world. “Excellent medical facilities, low crime, good educational institutions, decent air quality and solid infrastructure have contributed to Bern and Copenhagen topping our global rankings for quality of living for European assignees,” said Neil Ashman, Senior Location Ratings Analyst, ECA International. Updated annually, ECA’s Location Ratings system objectively evaluates a host of factors to form an assessment of the overall quality of living in over 470 locations worldwide. The system helps companies establish appropriate allowances to compensate employees for the adjustment required when going on international assignment. Factors assessed include climate; availability of health services; housing and utilities; isolation; access to a social network and leisure facilities; infrastructure; personal safety; political tensions; and air quality.The impact of some of the factors assessed will vary according to where someone comes from.“The significance of some of the factors assessed, such as distance from home and differences in culture, language and climate, will vary according to where someone originates from,” explained Ashman. “For this reason, our analysis considers both the home and destination countries. So, while Copenhagen and Bern rank at the top for Europeans they fall to ninth and 13th respectively for someone coming from Asia. For Asian expatriates, Singapore is the most liveable location. It ranks 95th globally from the perspective of a European assignee.” (font: ECA International)
