Which countries have the largest share of people in high-skilled employment? According to the World Economic Forum and International Labour Organization statistics, Luxembourg is in first position. Just under 60 percent of the small European country’s workers are employed in occupations with tertiary education requirements. This is largely thanks to a small, open economy with a burgeoning financial sector, dependent on a well educated workforce.

Singapore, another small country, has the highest proportion of high-skilled workers in Asia. An impressive 54.7 percent of its workforce is classified as high-skilled, the second highest globally. Switzerland rounds off the top three with 51.3 percent. Israel and Iceland come fourth and fifth with 49.7 and 49.2 percent respectively.
