Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.

Design/methodology/approach

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings

This research paper analyzes the talent management processes (TMPs) at universities in Queensland, Australia. The results reveal that, of the three TMPs, talent attraction (TA) strategies built around the social aspects of employee life have the most power to magnetize top talent, rather than merely celebrating the university's excellence. Of secondary importance were talent retention (TR) practices like offering flexible working. Indeed HR professionals can add value here by benchmarking their TR practices against those of competitors. Of lesser importance in the TMP hierarchy were the universities' approaches to developing existing talent.

Originality/value

The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
