Book Description

The field of talent management has grown and advanced exponentially over the past several years as an essential area of research. While interest in the field is growing, and recent research has provided valuable insight into various topics, there remain many opportunities for additional exploration and research. One such opportunity is to examine talent management topics related to the modern workforce and organizations – an area identified as contemporary talent management.

Divided into two thematic sections that provide a unique overarching structure to organize 18 chapters written by leading and renowned international scholars, this Research Companion assesses essential knowledge, trends, debates, and avenues for future research in a single volume. Some of the topics examined from a contemporary talent management perspective include Executive Search, Gifted Early Career Individuals, Managing Diverse Talents, Gender Sensitive Talent Management, Aging Global Workforce, Leadership Wisdom, Learning Agility, Employee Engagement, Entrepreneurship, Intrapreneurship, Small Business Enterprises, Talent Flow, Green HR, Gig Workers, and Mergers and Acquisitions.

In this way, the Research Companion is essential reading for anyone involved in the scholarly study of contemporary talent management, including academic researchers, advanced postgraduate and graduate students, and management consultants. For further debate on traditional talent management, readers might be interested in the supplementary volume, The Routledge Companion to Talent Management, sold separately.
