Today we’ll be looking at the 15 most livable cities from the 2015 Quality of Living Rankings. This list was compiled by Mercer primarily to help companies tabulate compensation packages for employees asked to work abroad. To achieve a real grasp of what each city was like they were evaluated across 39 metrics in 10 categories. Employees would be entitled to more compensation when being sent to less desirable cities, ranked lower on the list, to make up for a lack of amenities and intangibles. “Factors such as climate, disease and sanitation standards, ease of communications, and physical remoteness can often affect the success of a foreign assignment.” Based on this methodology, the 15 move livable cities are:

  1. Vienna, Austriatoronto - quality of life ranking 2015
  2. Zurich, Switzerland
  3. Auckland, New Zealand
  4. Munich, Germany
  5. Vancouver, Canada
  6. Dusseldorf, Germany
  7. Frankfurt, Germany
  8. Geneva, Switzerland
  9. Copenhagen, Denmark
  10. Sydney, Australia
  11. Amsterdam, Netherlands
  12. Wellington, New Zealand
  13. Bern, Switzerland
  14. Berlin, Germany
  15. Toronto, Canada

Taking an assignment abroad can be both exciting and challenging. Monetary compensation can help ease the transition of leaving a culture/city/ country that one knows and loves. Two main ways to compensate people are: “[A] quality-of-living or “hardship” allowance compensates for a decrease in the quality of living between home and host locations. [The other is] a mobility premium simply compensates for the inconvenience of being uprooted and having to work in another country.”

This list can be a factor in helping to calculate such packages. It is encouraging to see that not one, but two Canadian cities were able to make the top 15 and be considered amongst the world’s most livable locations.
