Report | January 2016
Since the release of the last edition of the Global Talent Competitiveness index in January 2015 in Davos, Switzerland, much has changed with regards to talent migration, labour markets, and talent development and flow.Over the last 12 months, the many presentations that were made of the report’s findings around the world have generated significant comments and reactions from governments, business and academia.such high-level and multi-sector interaction confirmed that (1) GTCi is an important and useful tool for those who are in charge of talent policies and strategies – internationally and nationally, in the private sector context as well as the sphere of government; (2) the notion of ‘talent competitiveness’ that GTCi introduced has started to enter the vocabulary of government and business leaders around the world, who see it as a core ingredient of prosperity; and (3) the linkages between the ‘micro’ and ‘macro’ components of talent competitiveness, one of the hallmarks of GTCi, need to be further explored to enhance collaboration between government and business in the area of job creation and people-centred growth.
