One of Barcelona Global’s great challenges, from the outset, has been knowing what the international professionals who live and work in Barcelona think about the city and identifying the obstacles that must be removed for it to be easier to attract them –and even easier to retain them. Through the International Talent Monitor we communicate directly with international talents and take steps to increase their sense of belonging to the city and get them more involved. The findings help us to improve and avoid complacency.

At Barcelona Global we benefit from the more detached view of the International Council members, who tell us how they perceive the city in terms of business-friendliness, talent, quality of life and brand, and help us to understand the image Barcelona conveys to the rest of the world. The survey consists of 24 questions, all of them relating to Barcelona Global’s objectives.Attached filesPerception Survey 2015. Fall Edition

Everis, with the support of Barcelona Global, has created an index combining 64 major quantitative indicators associated with a city’s talent and compares Barcelona’s scores with those of 25 top European cities to know where the city really stands. Barcelona is not ranked where we envision it should be and for that reason Barcelona Global is committing itself to make Barcelona a better city for talent.
