The exception to this is Costa Rica, which not only has a very happy workforce but employees who are likely to stay in their current jobs longer than the rest of their Latin American counterparts.

More than 200,000 young professionals in 57 markets participated in the survey for this research, which was carried out between September 2015 and September 2016.

Romania and Bulgaria sit in front of France in sixteenth place followed by APACs highest entrant, Singapore. Spain’s workforce stand in eighteenth place, followed by South America’s happiest workforce Colombia, who are closely trailed by neighbor Brazil in twentieth place.

Why does it matter?
“Employee happiness is crucial for retaining good talent as well as having a motivated workforce that delivers great results and continuously innovates. If the young professionals in a market show low levels of discontent, this is a good sign for the economy as whole. However, it is at these times when it’s harder to obtain the best talent from your competitors.” said Universum Research Project Manager, Daniel Eckert.
