Announcing the IMD World Talent Report 2016
In November 2016, IMD published the third edition of the annual World Talent Report. The report covers all 61 countries in the IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook.
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.
The IMD World Talent Ranking 2016 is led by Switzerland, Denmark, Belgium, Sweden and the Netherlands (first to fifth respectively). Finland is in sixth place, followed by Norway (seventh), Austria (eighth), Luxembourg (ninth) and Hong Kong (tenth).
