Abstract [en]

Talent Management, which is the art of recruiting and retaining the very best, talented people, has developed in response to globalisation and the 'knowledge society', where an individual's knowledge and talents are seen as the company's primary competitive factor. But a highly talented person is not necessarily an ideal employee. Such people can be very individualistic and find teamwork difficult. Their co-workers may view them as antisocial troublemakers; all the while the highly gifted employee might be frustrated at work, or terribly bored. The solution is to put trust in such workers, give them freedom and self-determination, challenging work tasks, and avoid confronting them with bureaucracies and formalities.
