Who Has Employees Assigned in Another Country?
Less than a third of visitors report that they have expatriates, according to a recent poll.

When asked "Do you have any employees who are assigned in another country?," only 29 percent responded "Yes" while the remaining 71 percent responded "No."

A recent survey by Mercer rated found that Zurich has the best quality of living among all cities in the world. No U.S. city was listed among the top 25 cities. Honolulu came closest at #28, followed by San Francisco at #29.

The Quality of Living Survey, which rates 215 cities, is "conducted to help governments and major companies place employees on international assignments." As explained by a senior researcher at Mercer: "Establishing suitable allowances linked to local costs and quality of living is essential in encouraging expatriate employees with transferable skills to accept international assignments." More details on the Mercer survey are available here.

The poll included 158 respondents.
