The Competitiveness Index for Global Talent presented at the World Economic Forum places Spain as one of the countries with fewer women in management positions.
The Competitiveness Index for Global Talent (GTCI) has analyzed 125 countries in various political, economic and business areas around the world. Among them, the leadership opportunities that women have in these countries have been studied, and Spain has positioned itself on the list as one of the countries with the fewest women in management positions in the world.
This index was presented this week in Davos (Switzerland), where the World Economic Forum is taking place, that is, the meetings of the most influential people in the economic, political and business sectors around the world.
“This study and development of the GTCI index has been carried out by the Adecco group, in collaboration with the Tata Communications agency and the Insead business school.”
This research has been developed around almost one hundred economic, social and human aspects of the 125 countries that enter the Index, a figure that has improved compared to last year, which analyzed 119 countries.
Spain ranks 31st in the Global Index, improving its position, since it remains in the same place in the list but this time with a larger number of countries analyzed.
But analyzing each indicator that has been taken to define the global index of a country, Spain suspends in some aspects of great importance.
Mainly, the points where it fails are the difficulties in hiring employed persons, occupying the 105th place out of 125 countries and the lack of relationship between the salary and productivity of the workforce, an area in which Spain is ranked 92.
But the indicator that makes Spain less competitive in its economic and business development is the lack of managerial opportunities for women, where the Spanish territory occupies the 112th place, that is, it is placed at the global level on gender equality in This aspect, and worse with respect to last year, which was in the 90th position.
Spain’s position 112 regarding the lack of managerial opportunities for women in our country is the worst score that Spain has obtained in all the indicators that make up the study, which indicates that it is necessary to implement measures to change this aspect especially .
As for the gender wage gap, Spain ranks 50, a place that could be improved by a greater commitment to pay equity between women and men.
Also the lack of collaboration in the organisms is a failure in the Spanish competitiveness, where it occupies the position 107 according to the Survey of Executive Opinion of the World Economic Forum, reports El País.
Although these indicators reduce competitiveness and talent in Spain, the country ranks 31st in the global index thanks to other areas in which it has great strength and impact.
For example, in environmental performance it is ranked 12th, and occupies the same position in the quality of management schools. In social protection, it is in the 15th position, and in the density of physicians per inhabitant in place 16 of 125.
In terms of higher education enrollment, Spain ranks 5th out of 125 countries, an encouraging and positive figure. In relation to lifestyle, the Spanish territory leads the list in the number 1 position in the sanitation area, since according to the study the water network of Spain is the best in the world.
Spain is part of the so-called “high income” countries, but among the European countries analyzed in the GTCI it ranks 20 out of 37 European territories, behind Portugal, Malta and the Czech Republic among others.
Switzerland returns to the top spot, followed by Singapore, the United States, Norway and Denmark. As for the most competitive cities of talent, Madrid occupies the 23rd position in 114 cities, Bilbao in the 44th place, Barcelona the 49th place and Zaragoza the 54th.
