The research field of talent management (TM) has received a remarkable degree of academic and practitioner interest in recent years (Cascio & Boudreau, 2016; Collings & Isichei, 2018; Collings, Scullion, & Vaiman, 2015; De Boeck, Meyers, & Dries, 2018; McDonnell, Collings, Mellahi, & Schuler, 2017; Morris, Snell, & Björkman, 2016; Jooss et al., 2019; Kravariti & Johnston, 2020; Beamond et al., 2020). Drawing upon ideas from human resource management (HRM), organizational behavior, the resource-based view, capability theories, and others, the field is now gradually maturing (Gallardo-Gallardo & Thunnissen, 2016; Krishnan & Scullion, 2017; Vaiman, Collings, & Scullion, 2017; Van den Broek, Boselie, & Paauwe 2018). Currently TM is a vital component of the world's most influential academic and practitioner-oriented conferences (e.g., Academy of Management Annual Meeting and EIASM Talent Management Workshop). Furthermore, during the period 2013–2018 the international Journal of Human Resource Management, the Journal of World Business, and the Human Resource Management Review, respectively, have published special issues on TM, all devoted to the conceptual and intellectual development of TM as an academic field.
