The availability of high-skilled work is a key driver of economic growth, making the most of a country’s human capital and building a diversified pool of talent.

The World Economic Forum’s Human Capital Report 2015 provides data for 124 economies across a range of indicators, including the proportion of each country’s workforce with high-skilled roles, which are defined as managers, professionals and technicians.

 

Top of this ranking is Luxembourg, where nearly six in 10 workers are in high-skilled employment, some way ahead of Singapore and Switzerland, in second and third places. After Israel (in fourth place on nearly 50%), European nations dominate the rest of the top 10. New Zealand takes 10th position, with just over 47% of its workforce classified as highly skilled.

The data for this ranking is taken from the International Labour Organisation.
