Talent Management and Gender Influences - A Discussion of Gender-Sensitive Talent Management

  • This chapter provides an overview of the gender aspects that are relevant to Talent Management, acknowledging gender as a social construction of the purportedly adequate behaviors and traits exhibited by males and females as the result of education and socialization processes. It discusses gendered perspectives and the needs of current and future key players, such as work–family balance and dual-career challenges, because they influence the decisions of talent to join, remain with, or leave organizations. The chapter focuses on well-qualified female professionals who are willing to invest in themselves and value their significant involvement in their work. By applying a gender lens, it addresses a gap in the Talent Management discussion and aims to contribute to the development of Talent Management on both the theoretical and practical level. If Talent Mangement systematically includes employees in mid- and late career and enables them to learn throughout their careers, it will expand its target groups.
