If you were asked to make a list of all the things to consider when taking a job in a country what would you list? Would you consider a number of vacation days, maternity leaves, or average pay scale? Every person’s perception is different when it comes to what they value the most in a job. So there is no definitive way to say that this country provides the best work environment.
According to the statistics from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), which had compared well-being factors like annual income, safety, and employment rates to work-life balance across several other countries.
Here are the 4 best countries to work according to the OECD statistics.
The US Earns the Most
America tops the household income and financial wealth list, with an average household disposable income of $38,001 (U.S.) a year. According to the OECD, the average household net financial wealth is estimated to be around $40,516 (U.S.), while the average household net-adjusted disposable income is about $23,047 (U.S.) a year.
Switzerland has the Best Opportunities
According to the OECD, the average working age in Switzerland is between 15 and 64, and 66% of the overall population has a paid job. Also employment levels are highest in Iceland (79%), Switzerland (79%), and Norway (75%) and lowest in Turkey (48%), Greece (56%), and Hungary (56%).
Denmark is the Happiest, Healthiest, and Most Balanced
Surprisingly, the Scandinavian nation, Denmark is not only the chilliest but also the most chill nations in the world. Air pollution is considerably lower than the world average, and 95% of the population say they are satisfied with the quality of their water, compared to an average of 84%.

Germany has the Best Working Culture
Germans work an average of 27.8 hours a week (how awesome is that!) which is one of the lowest working hours found in this study. You might think that working fewer hours means a low quality of life, but the opposite is true. Germans have a high standard of living and still have one of the strongest economies in Europe. So maybe the perfect balance of the ‘happy life formula’ might turn out better than we initially thought.
Having the perfect balance between your work life, family, and leisure is for most people the formula to lead a happy life. And in some countries this formula is better balanced than in others.
