Skilled workers come and stay
The results show that Switzerland is not only able to attract skilled workers but also to keep them. It came in first place globally in the respective category. It is not just the high quality of life and social protection playing a role here; according to the report, ecological and economic sustainability are becoming more and more important. Switzerland is working hard in this regard.
Commitment to sustainability paying off
