As the pandemic has changed the way we think about work, an increasing number of employees are interested in relocating to destinations that best suit their lifestyles while working remotely. As for companies, they can now hire the world’s top talent, regardless of where they live.

The study by WorkMotion resulted in a global ranking of the 80 best cities from among a list of popular, ideal destinations for teleworking. The study compared 17 factors in four main categories, such as employment compliance, cost of living, human rights and quality of life.
