Abstract

Considering the multinational dimension of numerous organisations, there is a growing concern with the management of talent at a global level. Accordingly, in this chapter, we focus on important theoretical and empirical research related to talent management in knowledge intensive firms, focusing specifically on Western Europe and India, especially the business process offshoring industry, with an aim to provide future research directions, as there is a vast gap in research in this area. We provide a thorough description of talent management strategies implemented in Western Europe and then move on to discuss the emerging talent management strategies in India, aiming to emphasise some specificities between the two regions. We additionally describe and analyse the talent flow patterns from Western Europe to India, and challenges for these European expatriates in India. Our overall aim is to understand the specific challenges of talent management focusing on the two regions, aiming to provide some hints to both researchers and practitioners.
