IMD recently released its 2016 World Talent Report  and ranked the USA 14th (out of 61 participating countries) in the 2016 World Talent Ranking.

Note: IMD is also known for its World Competitiveness Ranking and Business Competitiveness Report.

IMD bases its World Talent Rankings on 3 primary factors: Investment & Development, Appeal, and Readiness. We focused on the Appeal factor which contains a list of indicators (listed under line graph) including the way enterprises prioritize talent attraction, ability to attract, and retain highly skilled foreign talent just to name a few.

While the USA came in 14th overall in the World Talent Ranking, they were ranked 2nd in “Appeal” factor.
