According to the global graduate business school, INSEAD, Estonia is among the most talent-ready countries in the world.
The second edition of the Global Talent Competitiveness Index, created by INSEAD, in partnership with Singapore’s Human Capital Leadership Institute and Adecco, placed Estonia 19th in the index, just ahead of Japan and right after Belgium.
The index measures the countries’ ability to attract and incubate talent. According to INSEAD, in the ranking of 93 countries, European states continue to dominate the list with 16 of them in the top 25.
“Countries like Estonia show a high degree of openness in terms of trade, investments and people, where their small population, geography and lack of natural resources have meant that they have had to play the game of globalisation from early days.”
In a video interview, the authors behind the index specifically singled out Estonia, by pointing out that it has made into the top 20, surpassing France (23), for example.
