– 20 January 2017:
The Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI), an annual benchmarking report that measures the ability of countries to compete for talent, ranks Mauritius at the 46th place in its reports released last month. The report ranks 118 countries according to their ability to grow, attract and retain talent.
Launched for the first time in 2013, this year’s GTCI analyses how technology can indeed augment human efficiency. It goes further by examining how technological change affects and intensifies talent competitiveness and the nature of work, and how—inevitably, given the velocity of change—it will continue to do so.
The GTCI covers 19 Sub-Saharan Africa countries, of which four upper-middle-income countries of this group occupy the highest rankings, namely Mauritius (46th), Botswana (63rd), South Africa (67th), and Namibia (76th). The report underlines that only Mauritius is above the median GTCI score, supported by a solid Enable pillar (35th in the rankings). This edition of the GTCI which covers Mauritius for the first time, highlights that the Regulatory Landscape of the country is particularly good (26th in the rankings).
Much more than an international league table of talent, the GTCI report provides a tool-kit for governments, businesses and non-profit organisations throughout the world. Its wealth of data, analysis and national scoreboards is intended to help countries overcome talent mismatches and be competitive in the global marketplace.
