The famous list of World Best Multinational Workplaces is based on a database of survey companies which have been distinguished in the national lists of Best Workplaces.

The criteria are varying depending on company’s distinction in five national lists of Best Workplaces, employing less than 50 people in each country, in which is differed. A candidate company should also dispose 5,000 employees globally as 40% of its workforce works abroad.

  • Racism by multiculturalists

    I could understand this in places like US, Australia and Canada but in the rest of the world nations tend to be far less ethnically diverse.

    Statistically speaking if a company in a country with a dominant ethnic demographic is rated as very multicultural then it suggest description against that demographic. Employers are hiring based on ethnic affiliation rather than qualification. Aka Racism.

    Diversity is a code word for ‘less white people — more non-White people’.
