On a recent internal DE&I team call, my colleague Yaira Soriano, one of AIRINC’s internal cost of living researchers, mentioned her next trip would take place in Switzerland and Germany, specifically in Cologne where I now have my home office.
Today’s The View from the Top show update is a nod to Charles Dickens’ famous novel.

We all like to see a ranking. We like to know the best countries to live in; the most expensive cities; a listing of cities by their cost of living.
We invite you to a demonstration of our cost estimation tool. See how you can accurately plan employee assignments by understanding all costs, including: benefits, allowances and taxes. This webinar will be held in German.
When I moved back to Germany in 2019 after 15 years in the UK, one of the things I looked forward to the most was German Christmas markets.

Due to limited supply, rents have risen steadily despite a brief slump at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Supply is not expected to increase significantly until 2022 at the earliest.

When I joined AIRINC in December 2018, I started in our London office and had been living in the U.K. for 15 years at the time. I’m half German, half Indian, but grew up in Germany and went to school and university there with an Erasmus year in Paris, which to this day remains my favourite city in the world.
AIRINC is featured in the February edition of Mobility, a magazine that "examines the key issues affecting the global mobility workforce." This article appears on page 10, the "Tips and Trends" section, and is entitled Housing Markets on the Rise—and Not.
