Paul Evans, Academic Director of the INSEAD Global Talent Competitiveness Index, and Bruno Lanvin, INSEAD Executive Director for Global Indices

Diversity is the linchpin of innovative and competitive working environments.

  • INSEAD’s Global Talent Competitiveness Index shows high-income countries leading in fostering knowledge and vocational talent pools. Low-income countries are struggling in both areas.

  • Competition for jobs in the Middle East is heating up and job candidates are finding that making contact on the ground is the only way to stay ahead of the pack.

  • Forget planning and networking...it's a sure-fire way to remain stuck!

  • Smart leaders steer their organisations to victory, but wise leaders are needed to keep them on top in a dynamic world.

  • Star performers may be CEOs or politicians or even clerics; they may live in a forest or a city or a jungle. But they all share certain traits.

  • A perfect working team is more than a set of great CVs; it also encompasses competent jerks and loveable fools.
