Participants have commented that it was interesting to see that the focus of the contributions has changed over the past three years. Whereas at the first EIASM Workshop on Talent Management more conceptual research, concerning the definition of talent management and the boundaries of the field, was presented, this year more empirical work was done and the focus lied more on talent management in different contexts (e.g. talent management in MNEs, the public sector, family businesses, NGOs) and for different target groups (such as women, expatriates, and millennials).
The key note speech from Oliver Viel, gave a valuable insight in company’s talent attraction and employer branding activities. Breaks between the sessions and the workshop dinner have provided various possibilities for informal academic discussions and networking with other participants.
The 4th EIASM Workshop on Talent Management will take place on September 24-25, 2015 at the University of Valencia in Spain.
