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.
With this fifth edition, GTCI addresses the theme of Diversity for Competitiveness. When it comes to innovation and high performance, diverse teams do better than talented individuals—though only if people can collaborate with each other. With our heritage in the standardised schools, HR practices and organisations of the twentieth century, diversity is a resource that we are only beginning to tap. How can talent diversity be generated, enhanced, and leveraged by governments, regions, cities, and corporations to design and implement the talent strategies required in the uncertain future that lies ahead of us? How can teams and individuals realise their innovative potential through diversity? Education has a critical role to play in building the necessary mindset, as well as providing workers and managers with the necessary skills. Governments and businesses need to rise to the challenge of promoting the positive vision of diversity that ‘inclusive growth’ now requires. Short of this, the world’s fractures might continue to worsen, cancelling much of the positive momentum that the global economy seems to be gathering.
The report, which covers 119 economies, is based on research conducted by INSEAD (led by Pr. Bruno Lanvin and Professor Paul Evans) in partnership with The Adecco Group and Tata Communications.
