The International Institute for Management Development (IMD), a Switzerland-based private business school, has published the IMD World Talent Report 2017. Switzerland, Denmark and Belgium remain the most competitive countries in the 2017 IMD World Talent Ranking.
Europe continues to dominate the 2017 list, with 11 out of the 15 most talent competitive economies based on the continent, after a strong performance in 2016. Austria, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Germany, Sweden and Luxembourg make up the top-ten. Spain ranks 32th.
The IMD World Talent Ranking 2017 is based on countries’ performance in three main categories — investment and development, appeal and readiness. The three categories assess how countries perform in a wide range of areas. These include education, apprenticeships, workplace training, language skills, cost of living, quality of life, remuneration and tax rates.
