Kenya ranked sixth in Sub-Saharan Africa for talent competitiveness

Mauritius emerged top in the global list that only featured 19 countries from Sub-Saharan Africa

The listing dubbed Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) 2018, measured the ability of 119 countries to lure, develop and retain talented people.

Kenya had a GTCI score of 34.87 with the East African country fairing well in areas such as competition intensity and ease of finding skilled employees.

Mauritius emerged top in Sub Saharan Africa followed closely by Botswana, South Africa, Rwanda and Namibia to complete the top five list.

Developed by INSEAD, GTCI is an annual benchmarking report that measures and ranks 119 countries and 90 cities based on their ability to grow, attract and retain talent.

The report underscored the importance of diversity for building innovative teams and to equip organisations with the ability to address the needs of markets and operations in multicultural environments.

Globally, Switzerland remains the most talent competitive country in the world owing to an ideal economic environment in terms of its regulatory, market, as well as business and labor landscapes.
