The Global Talent Competitiveness Index is a report released by INSEAD in partnership with Human Capital Leadership Institute of Singapore and Adecco Group. The report measures the nations’ ability to compete for talent. The report also measures, how nations around the world grow, attract as well as retain talent. Countries that occupy the top slots in the table have certain characteristics in common. These are employment policies that support flexibility, good educational standards, mobility and entrepreneurship, among others.

The 2017 Global Talent Competitiveness Index, which is the fourth edition, places Switzerland at the top of the table with a score of 74.55. Singapore occupies the second spot with a score of 74.09. It is followed by the United Kingdom in the third place, which has a score of 69.4.

Apart from the United Kingdom, some other countries that score more than 60 are the United States, Sweden, Australia, Luxembourg, Denmark, Finland and others.

In fact, majority of the countries that have a score of 60 and above belong to Europe and all of them are high income economies.

BRICS, which are five major emerging national economies, do not fare very well on the 2017 Global Talent Competitiveness Index. The five nations China, Russia, South Africa, Brazil and India occupy the 54, 56, 67, 81, and 92 ranks with scores of 45.34, 45.03, 42.75, 38.99, and 35.65 respectively.

Portugal, France, Israel, Chile, Italy, Hungary, Saudi Arabia, and many others have scores between 50 and 60. Barring Costa Rica and Malaysia, which are upper-middle income countries, the rest belong to the high income category.

At the bottom of the scale and with scores of less than 30 are the nations of Ethiopia, Pakistan, Mali, Bangladesh, Tanzania, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Burkina Faso, and Madagascar. All of these nations fall in the lower-middle income and low income category.
