Abstract

Talent management (TM) is now firmly pursued by organisations globally as a strategic imperative. Although the present talent shortage is a global challenge, it is more critical in emerging economies, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. The enormous challenges associated with the attraction, development and retention of talent by firms operating in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) call for the adoption of robust talent management (TM) strategy to navigate these challenges. However, the extant literature on talent management has failed to examine in detail the talent management practices of organisations in Africa to feed into the stock of global knowledge on talent management. This chapter therefore provides empirical evidence on talent management with a contextual focus on Multinational Enterprises (MNEs) in a sub-Saharan African country.
