To create 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.


Following on from the highly successful inaugural Workshop on Talent Management which was held in Brussels in April, 2012, the 2013 Workshop is intended to provide a forum for academic debate on the rapidly growing field of talent management. Talent Management is increasingly identified as a critical success factor in the corporate world yet academic research on the area has developed more slowly and despite the growth of recent research it still lags behind practice. This workshop is designed to bring together leading and emerging scholars working from a range of disciplines 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.


Therefore 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 (which are not inclusive) include the following:

- The conceptual and intellectual boundaries of talent management
- Theoretical models of talent management
- Global talent management and the role of the corporate HR function
- Demographic trends and talent management
- The identification and evaluation of talent
- The nature and operation of talent pools
- Talent management and the global economic crisis
- Talent management and career development
- Talent management and ethics
- Talent management in SME organizations
- Talent management in not for profit organizations ( e.g., volunteer organizations)
- Corporate Social Responsibility and talent management
- Talent Management in the Emerging Markets
- Women and Talent Management
- Employer branding and talent management
- Knowledge Management and talent management
- Talent Management and leadership
- Talent management and innovation
