Top positions for European countries in 2020 World Talent Ranking
Switzerland has the greatest appeal for global talent, followed by Denmark, Luxembourg, Iceland and Sweden. That shows the 2020 World Talent Ranking of the IMD World Competitiveness Center. The rest of the top 10 includes three European countries. Compared to last year, Belgium has dropped two places, from 14 to 16. This remains an important focus point, the recommendations in VARIO Advice 1 'Attracting and anchoring top international talent' remain relevant. It is striking that the UK has been falling in the ranking for several years in a row. It is now in 23rd place. IMD believes that this is mainly due to the uncertainties surrounding the brexit.
