Abstract:

Talent management has been identified to be of strategic importance to organizations in the 21st century. Following the shift from industrial era economies to modern, knowledge based economies in many societies, the demand for talented knowledge workers has exceeded the supply. The talented knowledge worker has become in high demand, and organizations must compete for this scarce resource. The ability of organizations to attract, develop, and retain these talented individuals has become crucial to their continued success, and talent management has thus risen to the top of the agendas of many executive officers. Even though employees are the central subjects in talent management, little scientific research regarding the experiences, opinions and expectations of individuals in the context of talent management and the interconnected professional development activities which form a major part of it, has been done. Most of the research conducted has taken the point of view of the organization and the attitudes of employees, which are important to talent management principles and practices, have many times been neglected. This study therefore focused on what attitudes of employees were important to talent management.
