HR Committee: 2019 Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) and Implications for Thailand
On May 16, at the Rembrandt Hotel and Suites, the HR Committee had the privilege to welcome Tidarat Kanchanawat, Country Manager for Adecco Group Thailand, who spoke to the committee about 2019 Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) and where Thailand stands. Tidarat discussed the methodology of this study conducted by Adecco, INSEAD, and Tata Communications which ranks countries based on their capacity to enable, attract, grow, and retain talent.
While Thailand, currently ranked 66th out of 125 national economies studied, has gone up in ranking this year, by understanding the factors essential to a country’s or a city’s talent pool competitiveness, she believes that both public and private sectors could still pursue strategies shared by highly-ranked countries in this metric to foster favorable climate. Some of their commonalities include openness to entrepreneurial talent, open socio-economic policies, and strong ecosystems around innovation.
