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