9 Best Countries to Work In

A report released last year called “Where the Great jibs Are” throws light on the countries with best jobs and the worst jobs. The report was undertaken by 24/7 Wall St. along with the partnership of survey company Gallup and non-profit advocacy agency Meridian International. The report utilizes a unique technique to determine the rank of the countries on the list.

Sturat Holiday, former US Ambassador and CEO of Meridian International, thinks GDP per capita and unemployment rates are not worthy to reveal employment reality. They often are unable to paint the real picture and do not correlate with each other. The report was based on job satisfaction and differentiated countries on great jobs and good jobs. Great jobs have been put forward as full time and engaging jobs whereas good jobs are full time with opportunity of steady employment. Participants from 139 different countries had to answer 12 questions which were used to gauge the level of engagement among workers of the specific country.

The 9 countries with best jobs are:
