Slovenia 25th in Global Talent Competitiveness Index

Slovenia placed 25th among 103 countries on the Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI), which measures the countries' performance in their ability to attract, develop and retain talent. The five top ranking nations are Switzerland, Singapore, Denmark, Sweden and Luxembourg.

The new benchmarking study has been compiled by Adecco Group, the Switzerland-based human resource consulting multinational, in cooperation with graduate business school INSEAD and the Singapore-based Human Capital Leadership Institute.


The study, which comprises countries that generate 96.7% of global GDP and represents 86.3% of the population, has shown that not only companies but also countries increasingly compete for talents or the personnel they need and whom they want to attract, develop and retain.



"Fact is that global changes are expected in the coming years owing to greater mobility of labour force and the opportunities offered by the modern information and communication technology, so we should prepare for them by creating an optimal environment for the creation, development and retention of staff potential," director of Adecco's Slovenia subsidiary Miro Smrekar was cited in a press release.


The GCTI index is dominated by European countries. Eight of them rank among the top ten and 14 among the top 20. Slovenia completes the leading quarter of countries, placing only behind Austria (14th) among its neighbours.


Adecco presented the study at the World Economic Forum in Davos between 22 and 25 January.
