Studie "Most Swiss people would be willing to take a job in another country." from JobCloud.ch

The Swiss labour force is highly mobile

Most Swiss people would be willing to take a job in another country. But itís not because they expect to find a better career opportunity or standard of living elsewhere. That would be a lot to hope for, given how well the Swiss economy is doing. Instead, the Swiss who say they would be willing to work in another country cite the ability to broaden their personal experience or live in a different culture as their biggest motivations.

Mainly specialized professionals can easily imagine working abroad. The favourite destinations are USA (50%), Canada (44%), UK (44 %) and Australia (39%).
