Abstract

Sustainability of organizational activities depends largely on the commitment of the talented workforce involved. Talented employee’s organizational commitment lies on talent management practices embraced by the management of such an organization. This empirical study seeks to establish the relationship between talent management practices (talent attraction, talent development and talent retention) and organizational commitment (affective commitment, continuance commitment and normative commitment). Six (6) point Likert scale questionnaires were administered to the members of faculty of the University identified for the study. The data gathered were analyzed and results revealed positive significant relationships between talent management practices and organizational commitment. Talent development was identified by Friedman Rank correlation as the most predicting factor of faculty’s organizational commitment. It was thus recommended in the study, that management of organizations should create enabling environment through various strategies such as wage increase, good working condition and incentives etc., in order to combat the high rate of turnover confronting educational sector of the economy. Areas for further studies were also suggested.
