Abu-Ghazaleh: "TAG-Org Employs the Talented and Innovative"


Special to TAG Educa News Agency

AMMAN - As a global leader in professional and educational services, our most valuable asset is our staff. Diversity in hiring and in promoting personnel is core to our success. We would not have grown to our present size, in over 100 offices in all continents, without strictly hiring the most qualified employees regardless of their origin, gender, or religion. We also have a strong legacy in the promotion and appointment of female professionals to high executive positions.

We have created an environment in which all our personnel are valued and encouraged to provide great ideas for improvement and growth; Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, GTCI Advisory Board Member.

According to the Global Talent Competitiveness Index, Jordan ranked 50 among 119 countries around the world progressing by 8 ranks since last year 2017, per the report issued earlier this year by INSEAD.

The United Arab Emirates ranked the 1st among the Arab countries, ranking 17th globally while Qatar ranked 2nd and 23rd respectively. While Switzerland, Singapore and the United States of America lead the global list.

INSEAD CEO Mr. Bruno Lanvin said that Jordan enjoys a qualified human capital that motivates creativity and innovation through enabling and utilizing technology that can be done by encouraging start-ups and entrepreneurship.

Among the sub-indicators on which the indicator is based are; government efficiency, Business-Government relations, political stability, technology utilization, employability, external openness, brain retention, quality of education, and others.

According to the evaluation criteria of the global index, Jordan has achieved relatively good results in the field of empowerment and attraction and the preservation of talent, but it still needs to develop talent by supporting formal education and providing a supportive political and economic environment to create an environment conducive to talent to develop and flourish. At the same time, Jordan continues to achieve good results in sub-standards related to vocational and technical skills and global knowledge skills.

The Global Talent Competitiveness Index is an annual comparative study which released its first report in 2013, measuring the competitiveness of countries based on the quality of talent they can produce, attract and retain. This helps countries monitor their progress and compare performance with other economies. This provides the Governments and decision-makers with the tools and information to make any necessary changes to improve the competitiveness of talent.

GTCI index is published in a report published by INSEAD, a business school founded in 1957 that offers a number of academic programs related to management and has branches in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
