Switzerland needs global talent - about the study
One of the central challenges in Switzerland is that our business location is among the best worldwide, but we risk losing ground compared to other attractive locations.
Deloitte and the Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce have come to the conclusion that better framework conditions are needed for international top talent in order for the Swiss economy to remain world-class. Therefore, we decided to jointly analyse the current situation, work out proposals for solutions and present them in this study. The study is based on comprehensive data analysis and on a number of face-to-face interviews with companies, institutions and individuals based in Switzerland.
