The canton of Zug has some 112,000 inhabitants from 128 different nations. There are 29,650 companies domiciled here, generating almost 83,000 jobs. Moreover, Zug offers high quality of life, a diverse cultural scene, a wide range of local leisure and recreational activities, and a central location (just 25 minutes from Lucerne and Zurich, and 45 minutes from Zurich Airport). In other words, Zug is the perfect place for staff and their families to live.
A study by Credit Suisse in 2011 revealed again that the canton of Zug scores well above the Swiss average, and also far ahead of the next-ranked canton of Zurich, in terms of five key factors for choice of location – namely taxes for legal and natural persons, availability of highly-skilled labor, transport connections, and the educational level of the population.
Here is a voice from the business world:
“What I value about Zug as a location for industry is the un-bureaucratic and flexible support of the authorities, the low taxes, the high quality of life, the central position, the high-level international schools, and the attractive labor market.”
