The human factor is the most critical resource for national competitiveness. Launched in 2013, the Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) is an annual study ranking countries and major cities on their ability to, attract, develop and retain talent.
Developed by INSEAD, the Adecco Group and TATA Communications, the GTCI provides a benchmarking tool for governments, cities, businesses and not-for-profit organisations to help design their talent strategies, overcome talent mismatches and be competitive in the global marketplace.
How cities compete and innovate on the global talent scene
The number of cities covered in GTCI has moved from a total of 46 last year to 90 in this edition of the report. This significant increase is due to a combination of factors, including the proactivity of GCTCI’s research team in identifying new sources and indicators, as well as the contributions and feedback received from a number of municipalities around the world.
This section presents the findings of the GCTCI, looking first at the overall rankings of the 90 cities covered by GCTCI 2018, and then at specific rankings on each of the five pillars of the GCTCI model.
