Brisbane best place to work from home

A new study by digital learning platform Preply has revealed Brisbane as the best place in the world to work remotely.

The survey examines the conditions for remote work in 74 cities across the globe. Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne all ranked highly in the “workation” index with Brisbane coming up trumps globally.

To pinpoint the best city, the study analysed elements such as quality of life”, “climate and environment”, and “costs and safety”.

The study found not all cities are ideal for working remotely, but Brisbane has optimal conditions for anyone looking to adopt virtual work. With an average temperature of 22°C, Brisbane is said to have the perfect temperature for working productively.

Brisbane proves an ideal setting for those who want to work from home.

The city also scores above average in terms of cost factors and health care system. It is closely followed in second place by the European City Lisbon. The Portuguese capital is particularly well-suited for WORKATION thanks to its consistently good to very good scores on almost all criteria. The third place is taken by the Cypriot capital Nicosia. It offers, in addition to its sights, an average of 283 days of sunshine per year and very good conditions in terms of “cost and safety”.

Other cities that ranked highly include Taipai and Auckland.

“A year and a half of the pandemic acted like a catalyst for the digitization of the world of work in many industries,” says Kirill Bigai, CEO of Preply. “More and more Australian companies are making home or remote work possible. What was previously only possible for digital nomads has now become reality for many: WORKATION. A hybrid model of work and vacation. ”
