The global "war for talent"
In this paper we examine the "global war for talent," the factors that impact it, and organizations' responses to it. Using a comprehensive search of more than 400 contemporary academic and business press articles, the paper reviews relevant research and reassesses the "talent war." We posit that the dominant approaches to the "talent war" based on a scarcity state of mind and action, often characterized by a tactical and exclusive top talent or "star" focus, are being challenged by the emergence of a more evolutionary paradigm. This new paradigm adopts more strategic, innovative, cooperative and generative approaches which we describe as creative 'talent solutions.' The paper also highlights implications for future research, teaching and development in the field.
