About the report
- The GTCI report is compiled by INSEAD in collaboration with human resource firm Adecco and Google.
- The report, which measures countries based on six pillars —
- Retain talent
- Vocation and technical skills
- Global knowledge skills
- India has climbed eight places to 72nd rank in the GTCI which was topped by Switzerland, the US and Singapore.
- Sweden (4th), Denmark (5th), the Netherlands (6th), Finland (7th), Luxembourg (8th), Norway (9th) and Australia (10th) complete the top 10 league table.
- In the BRICS grouping, China was ranked 42nd, Russia (48th), South Africa (70th) and Brazil at 80th position.
- This year’s GTCI report explores how the development of AI is not only changing the nature of work but also forcing a re-evaluation of workplace practices, corporate structures and innovation ecosystems.
- India’s highest-ranked sub-pillar is employability, but the ability to match labour market demand and supply stands in contrast to the country’s poor “mid-level skills”, which result in a mediocre score in vocational and technical skills.
- India’s poor ability to attract and retain talent is its greatest challenge.
