Switzerland’s business friendly legislation, economic stability and highly educated workforce all contribute to its popularity as an expat destination.
The country is a great place to start a business. As well as coming first for overall economic factors in our 2017 Expat Explorer Survey, it was ranked 31st out of 190 countries in The World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Survey for 2017. And as host to an assortment of European headquarters and multinational companies, it’s especially well-equipped for foreign enterprises.
The Swiss try to conduct business efficiently and transparently – so what you see is usually what you get. Progress in the workplace is based on merit rather than established connections and networking, and you needn’t worry about being at a disadvantage as a foreigner.
