Denmark in top 3 of Global Talent Competitiveness Index
04 December 2013
The first edition of the Global Talent Competitiveness Index was launched by INSEAD last week, and Denmark ranks in the top just after Switzerland and Singapore. The Index measures a nation's competitiveness based on the quality of talent it can produce, attract and retain.
According to the report, some of the main reasons for Denmark’s top 3 ranking are high government effectiveness, ease of doing business and labour market flexibility which are all parameters that are important for the development of talent and the ability to turn this talent into results.
“Some people would say if you want to get ahead with your life, if you want to live the American dream, go to Denmark,” says Professor Paul Evans, Academic Director of the INSEAD Global Talent Competitiveness Index
Talent attracts international investors
The report gives insights into the global pools of talent and what drives competitiveness in this area. It shows that the right talent policies can be critically important in attracting global companies which can contribute to job creation and impel further development. Denmark’s top 3 ranking underlines the fact that there is a strong talent base available in Denmark for companies seeking to invest in areas such as R&D and innovation.
