The Best Cities for Talent

25 October 2018

When it comes to making a country, a city or an organisation competitive, there’s an essential ingredient – people.

For the last six years, the Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) has ranked countries and major cities on their ability to attract, develop and retain talent.

GTCI is an annual benchmarking report compiled by international business school INSEAD… It measures and ranks 119 countries and 90 cities based on their ability to grow, attract and retain talent.

In the Global Cities Talent Competitiveness Index, cities are measured using the same first four pillars as countries (Enable, Attract, Grow, Retain) with the addition of a new pillar: “Be Global”. This reflects the feeling of internationalisation within a city.

Europe sweeps the board, with Zurich, Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen and Helsinki taking the top five positions.
