Size does matter after all, at least when it comes to where Europeans would prefer to work. If they had a choice between working for a small or medium enterprise (SME) or a multinational corporation (MNC), a majority of Europeans would prefer to work in SMEs. Perhaps this number is not surprising considering SMEs are the backbone of Europe’s economy, representing 99% of all businesses in the EU. What is surprising (at least to us), though, is that MNCs seem to be quite popular among younger generations: 37% of those under 30 would rather work there than at a SME – compared to 30% for those older than 30. Would you have guessed?
