The ability to attract talent is key to the prosperity of nations. And it is particularly important during Great Resets which are underpinned by major shifts in talent across cities, regions, and nations.
New data from the Gallup Organization suggests that U.S. edge in attracting highly skilled and educated immigrants is slipping, while Canada is gaining. The Gallup study is based on interviews with nearly 350,000 adults across 148 countries.
The U.S. remains the number 1 most sought after destination for potential immigrants (those who would like to move), with Canada in second place. The U.S. also ranks first in appealing to younger potential immigrants, those in ther 15-24 year old age range. But Canada tops the U.S. as the leading destination for more highly educated potential movers. The Gallup study concludes that:
‘The United States’ appeal to the least educated and Canada’s greater appeal to the most educated is consistent across all regions. This is most apparent among those in the European Union, East Asia, and Southeast Asia who would like to relocate to either of these nations.”
Is the U.S. losing its edge in the competiton for global talent? Can it gain it back?Â Will Canada be able to turn this growing global interest in a true talent advantage. Are there any other nations which can dramatically improve their ability to compete in the ongoing Talent Reset?
