Talent management

Organisations benefit from talent that powers their businesses, especially in roles that would otherwise remain unfilled. Recruitment, selection, and talent management therefore comprise essential levers for a sustainable future of work. Our research focuses on the assessment and identification of talent, and we study topics such as test development, impression management tactics, and talent management programs. At a more general level, we examine the effects of HR practices on employee and organisational outcomes.
