India is ranked 92nd in the latest Global Talent Competitiveness Index 2017, among the 118 countries compared, based on their ability to grow, attract and retain talent.
The Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) is an annual benchmarking report that measures the ability of countries to compete for talent. The GTCI combines the academic research and expertise of INSEAD, Singapore’s Human Capital Leadership Institute (HCLI) and The Adecco Group.
“The 2017 GTCI study focuses on how technology is affecting talent competitiveness and the nature of work, exploring both significant challenges and opportunities, and important shifts away from traditional working approaches,” INSEAD says on its website.
High ranking countries share key traits, including educational systems that meet the needs of the economy, employment policies that favour flexibility, mobility and entrepreneurship, and high connectedness of stakeholders in business and government, it adds.
