Human capital, “the skills and capacities that reside in people and that are put to productive use” is a critical component to economic growth. The Human Capital Report is “to serve as a basis for designing effective measures for workforce planning.” The WEF ranked 122 countries to paint a picture of long-term economic potential measured on four pillars: education, health and wellness, workforce and employment and enabling environment. These were further broken down into 51 indicators spread across the four pillars. Based on this methodology, the 10 best countries when it comes to Human Capital are:

  1. Switzerland: Education rank: 4th; Health and wellness rank: 1st; Workforce and employment rank: 1st; and Enabling environment rank: 2nd.10-best-countries-human-capital-report-wef
