In a new report ranking countries around the globe on their workers' potential, the World Economic Forum argues that the health of a nation's workforce "can be a more important determinant of its long-term economic success than virtually any other resource." The rankings are based on four factors: education, health, workforce, and enabling environment. Education measures the quality of schools and the achievement of students to get a sense of how both current and future workers have been educated. Health measures physical and mental well-being from childhood through old age.
Here are the 10 countries with the best workers, based on all of those factors.
