When it comes to countries in which foreign employees want to work, the U.S. has slipped behind Canada as the most desired destination, according to a new wide-ranging survey by the Boston Consulting Group and recruitment services provider The Network.

The study, Decoding Global Talent, Onsite and Virtual, which surveyed 209,000 people in 190 countries, found that how well countries have managed to contain the coronavirus is having a pronounced impact on workers' attitudes towards working abroad. Despite representing less than 5 percent of the global population, the U.S. accounts for approximately 20 percent of the world's deaths from the virus.

The study revealed only approximately 50 percent of workers would consider moving to another country to ply their trade, down from 64 percent willing in 2014 and 57 percent in 2018. This downward trend line was prevalent in nearly every country in the world, according to BCG.
