ABSTRACT

Talent management deals with attracting, developing and retention of key organizational talent so as to improve organizational performance. Talents in organizations are not well managed leading to poor motivation, absenteeism and high labour turn over. This is especially so in private universities in Kenya where universities are losing experienced professors to the public universities and other government institutions. The objective of the current study is to investigate the role of talent management on performance of private universities in Kenya. Specifically the study seeks to establish the effect of talent attraction, talent retention and talent development on the performance of private Universities in Kenya. The research endeavors to shed light onto the role that Talent Management plays in improving organizational performance. Therefore it is imperative to investigate the association between talent management and organization performance. These objectives will be achieved through a descriptive research which utilizes both qualitative and quantitative research methods. The data will be collected using both primary and secondary methods. The data will be presented using tables and charts. The data will be analyzed using the Statistical Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS). The findings of this study demonstrate that there is positive relationship between the independent and dependent variables hence attraction, retention and development of talents will lead to organizational performance. The research proposal recommends that Talent Management should be incorporated in organizations to ensure improved and high performance levels in private Universities in Kenya.
