(headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland; CEO: Alain Duaz), INSEAD, and Google today announced that it has acquired, cultivated, The latest edition of the annual report, which surveyed and ranked the ability to maintain, was released as the Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) 2020 (GTCI 2020).
“The Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) 2020” (full report PDF, English) The GTCI 2020, announced at the World Economic Forum in Davos, reveals that Switzerland is number one in the country rankings and continues to lead the world in human competitiveness. The United States moved up from second place to third place, and Singapore, which was second place, fell one place to third place. Japan climbed three places from 22nd last year to 19th.
Overall, high-income countries account for the top 25 GTCI countries, demonstrating that such “human capital-developed countries” are further accelerating gaps with the rest of the world. This gap is compounded by the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and the associated digital skills gap that has emerged across industries, sectors and nations.
The Adecco Group, recognizing this mismatch in skills and the importance of investing in human resources, is working to upgrade and reskill 5 million people by 2030. Reskill activities are led by General Assembly, which runs a training and development business in the group. The department specializes in equipping individuals and teams with the most demanding digital skills today, such as data science, coding and machine learning skills.
Regarding “GTCI 2020”, Alain Dehaze, CEO of Adecco Group, commented as follows. “As machines and algorithms continue to impact the diversity of roles and responsibilities, and change is taking place in almost every job, securing the right talent for organizations is more important than ever.
Robots and algorithms are affecting not only factories, but also homes, corporate back offices, and corporate headquarters. All workers need training to develop the typical ‘human skills’ that complement technology, such as adaptability, social intelligence, communication, problem solving, and leadership.
The next decade will be the era of the ‘Reskill Revolution’ and will focus on ‘fusion skills’ that will enable both to work together in a hybrid model where humans and machines are mixed I am. With this in mind, the Adecco Group is committed to improving and reskilling 5 million people worldwide by 2030, and encouraging them to acquire future skills that will enable them to succeed in the AI ​​era. Is out. ”
The theme of “GTCI 2020” is global human resources in the age of AI. In particular, the report shows that more than half of the population of developing countries lack basic digital skills, with few developing rapidly, while most developing countries lag behind. Digital skills disparity is growing.
New approaches are being undertaken to find the best balance between people and technology working together to work well and succeed in the future workplace. As this new collaboration continues to develop, international competitiveness in human resources is being redefined, and each country is working to become a leader in the AI ​​revolution. Although the digital skills gap is large and growing, the analysis in this report shows that AI can provide a huge opportunity for “leaps” in emerging markets.
For example, a longitudinal analysis of the competitiveness of human resources has revealed that some emerging countries, such as China, Costa Rica, and Malaysia, may become “human capital advanced countries” in their respective regions. On the other hand, other countries, such as Ghana and India, have improved their ability to utilize, acquire, develop and maintain human resources in the past few years, and have achieved the status of a “human resource-improving country.”
Looking at cities, New York is number one this year, followed by London, Singapore, San Francisco and Boston. Tokyo came in 8th. New York’s No. 1 ranking is four out of the five pillars evaluated in this survey, specifically “Enable”, “Attract”, “Grow”, and “Global Knowledge Skills” Knowledge skills) category. Overall, cities with proven capacities for “ready for the future” rank high, with top five activities in areas such as AI, fintech (financial technology) and medtech (medical technology). Worked in favor of urban human performance. Increasingly, more cities are becoming demonstration sites for new AI-based tools such as face recognition, remote monitoring, and autonomous driving. Their success varies from city to city, but with good results
Cities will emerge as AI hubs with a pool of talent to sustainably deploy global solutions.
