Talent Management:A Bird’s-Eye Perspective
Human capital is considered as one of the most vital source of competitive advantage. This reality compels organisations to approach talent as a precious resource that must be handled effectively and efficiently in order to achieve high performance. Organisations are gradually appreciating that effective talent management is the key success factor to achieve organisational goals with high performance. A number of organisations are implementing talent management but still there are abundant unknown areas that need to be explored. This paper contributes to a better understanding of talent management by adopting a bird’s eye perspective of the available scholarly literature ranging from 1997 to 2019 to explore the conceptual boundaries of talent management. Findings reveal that the term talent management has become the most debated topics of 21st century among HR professionals and academicians which leads toward high performance with successful achievement of personal and organisational ambitions.
