Which countries score highest for worker satisfaction among non-native language speakers?
Preply searched on Glassdoor for employee reviews that were written in a different language to the native language of the country to figure out the highest worker satisfaction among non-native language speakers.
- Mexico 80.1%
- United States 78.7%
- Canada 74.6%
- New Zealand 74.5%
- Germany 74.4%
The US had one of the biggest differences in reviews left by non-native workers vs. local employees. Nearly 79% of non-native speaking employees had a “great working experience” in the US, while only 31.6% of American workers posted positive reviews.
The study assumes those who are non-native speakers are immigrants. Cross-cultural workplace expert Robert Johnson, a lecturer at Regent’s University London, explains why there is such a difference.
“(Immigrants) are usually the best qualified, most capable, most adventurous employees, and they are also likely to be grateful to their company for giving them the opportunity to lead that glamorous lifestyle in one of the world’s great cities,” Johnson says in the study.
