Abstract and Keywords

The focus of the chapter is on the practices used by multinational corporations (MNCs) to manage employees defined as “talent.” We examine the content of corporate practices, the actors involved in carrying out these practices and the roles they are playing, and the effects of these practices on outcomes at different levels of analysis. Efforts are made to identify promising ways to enhance our knowledge of talent management in the context of MNCs. By way of an illustration of the kinds of issues covered, we present the talent-management practices of one MNC in particular, the Finland-based elevator and escalator company KONE.

Keywords: talent management, multinational corporations, integration-responsiveness framework, implementation, internalization, integration, HR function, talent management as practice
