The IMD World Talent Ranking captures the capacity of an economy to develop as well as attract talent to strengthen its competitiveness. Countries are scored across three factors of Investment & Development, Readiness and Appeal.
"The latest ranking suggests that most economies that perform well focus their talent development efforts in every stage of the educational process. From primary education to tertiary, to apprenticeships and continuous work training, enhancing the skills and competencies of the work force is important. The top performing economies are open to both people and ideas. Finally, in the difficult times of social distancing and working from home, keeping the employees motivated contributes to the talent competitiveness of an economy."
