The GTCI report is published annually by INSEAD, the Business School for the World, in partnership with Portulans Institute (an independent non-profit, non-partisan research and educational institute based in Washington DC) and with our Knowledge Partner the Human Capital Leadership Institute (HCLI, a centre of excellence that facilitates the acceleration of leadership development and strategic human capital management capabilities in Asia).
The report is a comprehensive annual benchmarking report that measures how countries and cities grow, attract and retain talent. It provides a unique resource for decision makers to understand the global talent competitiveness picture and develop strategies to boost their economies. The 2022 report covers 133 countries and 175 cities from 79 economies around the world across all income groups.
The ninth edition of the report titled, ‘Talent Tectonics: is the world drifting towards more talent inequalities ?’ , explores how the ability of national economies to grow, attract and retain talents has been changing over time, and offers insights into how governments, organisations, businesses and individuals can move forward. Managing talent is now a mainstream concern and talent performance is seen as a critical factor to growth and prosperity. If current talent inequalities are allowed to grow, some may become irreversible, and significantly diminish our collective ability to reach some of the key targets of SDGs.
Against the background of GTCI’s latest data and analyses, this high-level panel (combining the experiences and views of governments, business, civil society and academia) will discuss the extent of current ‘talent divides’, and what needs to be done to prevent them from growing further.
