What makes Australia a great place to work?

Australia is the second happiest country in the world. The famous and well-recognised journal “The Wall Street Journal” gave this title to Australia after analysing eleven welfare variables used by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) that created the Better Life Index. It has high values in all variables assigned by the index: employment, income, housing, community, education, work-personal balance, environment, citizen participation, health, life satisfaction and safety.

It is also well-known that Australia has an active economy that has been strengthened over the last decades. International commerce is orientated to the fabrication of high value products and services. It has a skilled workforce, the socio-political backing of democratic institutions, social harmony and a lifestyle that is an example throughout the world.
