Resources

As we continue to work on the TalentNZ project we are constantly finding new resources that provide a fascinating insight into the emerging discourse on talent. We have organised the resources under the headings Grow, AttractRetain and Connect, reflecting the four main pillars that were identified as essential for creating a talent-based economy. Please note that many of the resources below cover more than one pillar.

For those interested in measuring talent we highly recommend the report The Global Talent Competitiveness Index 2013 by Bruno Lanvin & Paul Evans (eds) – see the video of the authors here – The World’s Most Talent Competitive Countries (November 26, 2013). We also recommend Investigating New Zealand-Australia productivity differences: New comparisons at industry level by the New Zealand Productivity Commission as a useful resource in terms of measuring talent.

If you are aware of any interesting resources you would like to share, please email us at talentnz@mcguinnessinstitute.org.
