Slovenia ranks third among 31 European countries included in a rating evaluating investment risks for foreign investors from a human resource perspective conducted by the Federation of European Employers (FedEE).

According to FedEE's web site, Poland was the safest choice for foreign investors, followed by Denmark, Slovenia, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

The survey, which included 27 EU members, as well as Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey, rated the countries on the basis of 15 quantifiable factors related to labour supply, human capital, employee relations, inflationary pressures, labour costs and labour flexibility, according to FedEE's web site.

Slovenia scored positively on labour capability, including investments into workforce, training activities for employees, lifelong learning, labour costs and labour flexibility.

On the other hand, Slovenia got negative scores for levels of direct investment as a percentage of GDP, collective labour agreements and tax on wages.
