Maybe you have just joined the workforce and you already realize that working nine hours a day at a job you hate isn’t a way to spend the rest of your life. Maybe you’ve been working for a while and you’ve suddenly realized that you can save a little bit of effort by moving to a place and a career that makes you happy. Maybe you just can’t do what you’ve been doing any longer and you desperately need a change of scenery. Whatever the reason, you’re on the hunt for the best place in the world to work, while also having the best quality of life and being truly happy. Luckily for you, we’ve come along to give you the list of the countries in the world that have a great combination of happy workforces, good pay and low unemployment.
Switzerland is one of those countries that is very good for women who have children, when it comes to finding work. The country has an unemployment rate of just over 3 percent. That ranks among the top 20 in the world and is constantly at or near the lowest rate in all of Europe.
The people in Taiwan tend to live pretty long lives on average and they are able to enjoy steady employment while they are enjoying their long life spans. The unemployment rate of just 3.76 percent is the envy of plenty of countries in the region, as well as the developed world.
Finland actually falls short of some of the other countries on this list, considering that four percent working more than 50 hours is actually quite a high number in this group. Workers are making a decent wage, averaging more than $46,000 but that’s not astronomical.
What puts them on this list is how the country has chosen to deal with working parents. Government officials make sure any working parent who wants it, has easy access to free childcare.
While Austria is still working its way back to real prominence with an unemployment rate of 8.3 percent, those who are able to get and keep work are earning an average of more than $38,000 per year.
The country also has a good standard of living and a nice life span with people in the country living well into their 70’s on average.
