Abstract and Keywords

Talent-management research has primarily focused at the individual and organizational levels. While this work has added much value to the literature, we believe that shifting the focus to the macro context will further strengthen the field. This might include exploring country-level government activities that enhance a country’s talent levels; non-governmental initiatives to help various countries bolster their talent-management programs; global talent mobility; and knowledge transfer. To incorporate this focus more systematically, we present a conceptual framework for macro talent management. The framework draws our attention to the macro, global, and country context within which talent management occurs, as well illuminates its multiple processes and outcomes. We offer directions for future research and discuss implications for policy makers and companies.

Keywords: macro talent management, talent management, governmental and non-governmental organizations, immigration, diaspora, knowledge flows, global labor markets, macro view
