Global Talent Competitiveness Index

Launched for the first time in 2013, the Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) is an annual benchmarking report that measures the ability of countries to compete for talent. The report ranks 118 countries according to their ability to grow, attract and retain talent.

Much more than an international league table of talent, the GTCI report provides a tool-kit for governments, businesses and non-profit organisations throughout the world. Its wealth of data, analysis and national scoreboards is intended to help countries overcome talent mismatches and be competitive in the global marketplace.

The GTCI combines the academic research and expertise of INSEAD led by Bruno Lanvin, Executive Director for Global Indices, and Professor Paul Evans, Academic Director, Global Talent Competitiveness Index, and Singapore’s Human Capital Leadership Institute (HCLI) with the business experience and perspective of The Adecco Group, the world leader in workforce solutions.

The 2017 GTCI study focuses on how technology is affecting talent competitiveness and the nature of work, exploring both significant challenges and opportunities, and important shifts away from traditional working approaches.

In addition, 2017 will also see the launch of the first index focused on cities: the Global Cities Talent Competitiveness Index (GCTCI). GTCI has continually shown that successful talent competitiveness is higher where there are strong ecosystems, like cities and regions. This first edition features 46 cities and explores the factors that contribute to turning cities into talent magnets.
