Recently, the 2017 Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTC) was published by INSEAD and produced in partnership with The Adecco Group and the Human Capital Leadership Institute of Singapore. The GTCI measures how countries grow, attract and retain talent, providing a resource for decision makers to develop strategies for boosting their talent competitiveness. The theme of this fourth edition of the GTCI is "Talent and Technology: Shaping the Future of Work."
High-ranking countries share key traits, including educational systems that meet the needs of the economy, employment policies that favor flexibility, mobility and entrepreneurship, and high connectedness of stakeholders in business and government.
The top 10 countries are:
- United Kingdom
- United States
When just looking at cities specifically, the top 10 looks like this:
