Limassol in top 100 for quality of living

Limassol has been placed in the top 100 cities worldwide in Mercer’s quality of living rankings for 2019.

Mercer’s, the world’s largest human resources consulting firm, ranked Limassol 86th of 231 cities in its annual report.

In first place is Vienna, followed by Zurich. Vancouver, Munich and Auckland share the third spot. The rest of the top ten are European cities: Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Copenhagen, Geneva and Basel.

The ranking indicates differences in quality of living factors affecting expatriates in popular assignment destinations.

The bases of the quality of living ranking is ongoing research on the practicalities of daily life for expatriate employees and their families.

“Factors such as climate, disease and sanitation standards, ease of communications, and physical remoteness can often affect the success of a foreign assignment. Moreover, the local political and social environment, political violence, and crime may give rise to potentially uncomfortable, inconvenient, or even dangerous situations,” the company explained.

The survey is used by companies to calculate compensation for employees who are sent to locations away from home.
