Germany’s Manager staying at home or coming back.
Re to Manager and Specialist migration Germany is not as high affected as other European countries – this is the result of an international study about the migration behavior of Executives.
During 2008 and 2009 throughout Europe nearly 17 per cent of Manager went to another country for their career. At the same period of time the percentage for German Manager who left the country was only at 7 per cent. One of the main reason why Executives are emigrate is the salary: Europe-wide Germany counts besides Switzerland to one of the countries with the highest average income for the middle management – accordingly Switzerland was the most popular country for those German Mangers who didn’t want to stay in Germany.
Another important motive is the native language – when you look at the numbers of the target countries for German career-emigrants you can see that the most Manager and Specialists moved to Switzerland with 26 per cent. Another popular country for German Top-Executives is Austria with 7 per cent. Roughly one third of first-rate professionals orientated themselves on counties with the same language, this number supports the relevance of the native language for a migration.
