Macro Talent Management book
Talent management is a topic of priority focus to management executives today, yet despite the executive focus on talent as an organisational strategy, persistent challenges exist. While the focus of talent management has largely been at the organisational level, this chapter draws on the literature which explores the concept of macro talent management (MTM). Macro talent management—that is, talent management which takes place at the national, country or regional level—is a necessary and critical topic of inherent relevance to the study and practice of global talent management in organisations today. Business and HR leaders have the opportunity to examine how MTM contributes to or constrains organisational global talent management or local talent management practices. This chapter introduces the topic of macro talent management and reviews the current literature. In doing so, tensions which exist currently between global and macro talent management are presented, along with a discussion of the significance of MTM to global business and business managers today.
