The Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI)

The Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) is an annual benchmarking study measuring the ability of countries to compete for talent. Designed as a practical tool for governments, businesses and non-profit organisations, GTCI ranks over 100 economies according to their ability to develop, attract and retain talent.

Launched for the first time in 2013, GTCI is based on research conducted by INSEAD (led by Bruno Lanvin, Executive Director for Global Indices, and Professor Paul Evans, Academic Director, Global Talent Competitiveness Index) and the Human Capital Leadership Institute of Singapore (HCLI), guided by a distinguished Advisory Board and Academic Council. The Index is developed in partnership with Adecco, the world's leading provider of HR solutions.


INSEAD's Global Innovation Index has now become a globally recognized benchmarking publication in the area of innovation and is launched annually. The GTCI aims to gain the same status in this and coming years through its annual report, including the global rankings, analytical chapters, country scoreboards and attached website.
