Britain, Germany and France are not as good at developing high-qualified staff and find it harder to attract talented foreigners than the Netherlands, according to Tuesday’s Financieele Dagblad.
Quoting from a new survey published today by the Economist Intelligence Unit and head-hunters Heidrick & Struggles, the paper says the Netherlands is in third place on the Global Talent Index which compares 30 developed and developing nations. The paper does not say who heads the list.
According to the FD, the Netherlands’ high ranking is largely due to good overall educational levels and the number of people involved in research and development.
Other positive attributes are the linguistic talent of the Dutch and the ease of employing non-Dutch nationals, the paper says.
Less positive is the quality of universities and business schools, which rank 10th, in line with Greece.
