BACKGROUND

Following on from the eight previous highly successful Workshops on Talent Management that were held in Brussels in 2012 and 2013, Berlin in 2014, Valencia in 2015, Copenhagen in 2016, Barcelona in 2017, Helsinki in 2018, and Toulouse 2019, this workshop is intended to continue providing a forum for academic debate on the rapidly growing field of talent management.

Talent Management has established itself as one of the key priorities for C-suite executives and HR professionals alike. However, HR professionals continue to struggle to deliver on the talent agenda. This workshop is designed to bring together leading and emerging scholars working from a range of perspectives in the area of talent management with the intention of developing theoretical and empirical work which can contribute to this rapidly emerging area of study.

OBJECTIVES

To continue growing a forum for academic exchange of conceptual and empirical (qualitative or quantitative) research in the area of talent management. The workshop has a strong developmental focus and as such encourages research which may be in progress as well as completed research.

CALL FOR PAPERS

We invite papers from a wide range of disciplinary traditions that explore talent management issues from both theoretical and practical perspectives, and we encourage papers which are multi-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary in nature.

We welcome empirical papers from both qualitative and quantitative traditions. We would particularly welcome papers from regions and countries which have to date been underrepresented in debates on talent management.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Theoretical models of talent management
  • Macro-perspectives on talent management
  • Global talent management and the role of the corporate HR function
  • Demographic trends and talent management
  • The identification and evaluation of talent
