The Cities Best Facilitating Remote Work study by global employment specialists assessed how easy is it for companies to compliantly hire remote workers based on local legislation, in addition to the legal requirements, while factoring in living costs, infrastructure and liveability.

Topping the list is Melbourne while Montreal and Sydney ranked second and third.

Rounding out the Top Ten were Wellington, New Zealand (4), Prague (5), Tallinn (7), Zagreb (8), Singapore (9) and Dublin (10).

“The growth of remote working has opened up new avenues for employees around the world,” Carsten Lebtig, co-founder and managing director of WorkMotion, said in a statement.

“People are increasingly less restricted by their location and the size of its job pool, and can regard foreign locations as possible work destinations regardless of whether or not they speak the local language. Now that the initial shock of the pandemic has subsided, we wanted to capture a snapshot of the current remote working landscape as the first step in tracking how it changes over the coming years. Many remote workers are drawn to cities by the promise of a different lifestyle or climate. We hope this study can provide inspiration to anyone looking for a change of scenery and open up their minds to unexpected destination.”
