Talent Management is one of the top priorities for HR professionals. According to the study “Creating People Advantage” done by Boston Consulting Group Talent Management is characterized by high future relevance and low current capabilities. One of the challenges relates to cultural and regional adjustment of headquarter based talent development programs. This project has the goal to develop a talent management grid with different cultural lenses. Specifically, we take the talent management process as a starting point and explore using GLOBE study results how different cultural dimensions may influence how talents are optimally recruited, identified, developed and retained. We additionally explore how talent management should be communicated in different cultures to assure positive effects for both talents and not nominated employees. Methodologically, we intend to conduct a qualitative interviews and a survey study among HR professionals of international companies.
