Global report recognises Finland’s talented abilities
Switzerland-based global business school IMD has ranked Finland sixth in its latest World Talent Report.
Based in Switzerland, the annual study assessed how 61 countries develop, attract and retain talent under the pillars of Investment and Development, Appeal and Readiness.
This trio of pillars were divided into a number of smaller indices, which incorporated such factors as education, cost of living, training, brain drain, quality of life, language skills, remuneration and tax rates.
Altogether over 4 000 executives were surveyed in order to determine each country’s ranking.
Whilst Finland’s place represents a slip of two places from last year’s ranking, the country has been a fixture in the top 10 since 2009.
Once again Switzerland topped the index, followed by Denmark and Luxembourg. At the other end of the scale, Bulgaria was ranked last.
