Crisis? What crisis? Study says Europe leads world in business talent

A major global study, the 3rd annual World Talent Report from IMD business school has identified crisis-riddled Europe as home to nine of the ten economies best equipped to develop, attract and retain business talent. 

Switzerland and Denmark still comfortably hold first and second spots, as they did last year, with Belgium rated third, Sweden fourth and the Netherlands fifth. Finland, Norway, Austria, Luxembourg and Hong Kong complete the top 10, with Germany (11), Iceland (16), Ireland (18) and the UK (20) also featuring in the first 20. 

Many prominent economies fare disappointingly, with the US 14th, as it was in 2015, Japan 30th and mainland China slipping further down the rankings to 43rd.
