The IMD World Talent Ranking focuses on three main categories - investment/development, appeal and readiness - which in turn are derived from a much broader range of factors. These include education, apprenticeship, employee training, brain-drain, cost of living, worker motivation, quality of life, language skills, remuneration and tax rates.

Press Release

"Pure economic power and talent don't always go hand-in-hand. The key attribute among all the countries that rank highly in our standings is agility, as shown in their capacity to shape policies that preserve their talent pipeline" said Professor Arturo Bris, Director of the IMD World Competitiveness Center.
