Metropolitan Region of Rotterdam-The Hague to become Global Talent Hub
The 9th ICP Captains’ Conference will take place in the World Trade Center The Hague on Friday 3 November. The theme of the conference, organized by the International Community Platform (ICP), is ‘The Art of Creating a Global Talent Hub’. More than 200 prominent executives from international industry and the government will gather to brainstorm on how to make the Metropolitan Region of Rotterdam-The Hague even more attractive to global talent in terms of life and work. Nicole van Haelst, ICP Director believes that “it is clear that regions where traditional talent follows companies and are most attractive to talent have a competitive advantage. We need to act to continue to provide a pool of talent in our region. The goal is to create a Global Talent Hub.” During the conference, Prof. Bruno Lanvin, Executive Director of INSEAD, will talk about the Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI). The GTCI measures the talent competitiveness of countries and cities. During the conference, he will preview the position of the Metropolitan Region of Rotterdam-The Hague. The ICP Captains’ Conference will be opened by the Mayor of The Hague, Paulien Krikke.
The Art of Creating a Global Talent Hub.
The theme running through the Conference is the shared interest in structurally attracting employment and economic growth to the Metropolitan Region of Rotterdam-The Hague and safeguarding these. The focus lies in increasing access to talent, being able to offer the most attractive life and work environments to global talent in every phase of their life-career. During the ICP Captains’ Conference of 2016, the ICP made a substantive contribution to the regional Human Capital Agenda 2017-2020. For the first time, there was talk of ‘global talent’. The term covers a wide target group that includes students, Dutch nationals with an international mindset to international knowledge migrants.
The Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI)
The GTCI is an annual benchmark report that measures the capacity of countries to compete for talent. Prof. Bruno Lanvin, Executive Director of INSEAD, says “The GTCI can serve as input in defining policy and practical resources to boost the quality and the impact of private and public policies in subjects such as technology, innovation and human capital.” The 2017 GTCI scores will be published in January 2018. Last year, INSEAD started working at a GTCI at city level – the Global Cities Talent Competitiveness Index (GCTCI). Participants at the Captains’ Conference will get a glimpse in the GCTCI scores of the Metropolitan Region of Rotterdam-The Hague. In 2016, Copenhagen won the top position. Nikolai Lubanski, Director of Talent Attraction Copenhagen, will share his experiences during the conference.
