DUBAI: This international city that never sleeps and home to expats from over 200 countries around the world just got another feather in its cap: Conde Nast, the bible of traveling, has ranked it 4th among top 10 countries to work in.

The report, which was just recently published online, was based on a survey by UK-based Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corp. (HSBC) which surveyed over 22,000 expats from 163 countries about their first careers abroad.

“The “Expat Explorer” survey focused on eight career-focused criteria: The ability to acquire new skills; work-life balance; work culture; job security; career progression; gaining personal fulfillment at work; employee benefits received; and earning prospects,” said the Conde Nast Traveler report.

It added that countries in Europe and the Middle East dominated the list, with Germany nabbing the top spot.

1. Germany
2. Bahrain
3. United Kingdom
4. United Arab Emirates
5. Switzerland
6. Sweden
7. Singapore
8. United States
9. Canada
10. Hong Kong

The UAE, known for its state-of-the-art global cities – Dubai and Abu Dhabi – is known for its policy of tolerance and as being among the safest cities in the world, officials said.

Germany topped the list, the report said, because “expat workers raved about the country’s efficient workplaces and overall work culture.

“It rated as the world’s best country for career progression in the survey (65 percent described it as productive), while 70 percent of workers claim their work-life balance improved after their move to the country.

“Factors like increasing employment rates and a nationally legislated minimum wage means improved job security, while the working culture was rated second only to Sweden.

The CNT report, citing HSBC, stated that some German brands even ban employees from reading emails on the weekend.
