This paper proposes empirical research into talent management in an Offshore Global Financial Centre (OGFC) utilising a societal ‘lens’ and grounded in a pluralistic, stakeholder perspective. The paper examines the extent to which theoretical and conceptual developments in talent management theory can be applied in a ‘micro-society’ context, specifically the Cayman Islands, a UK Overseas Territory. The paper illuminates debates surrounding inclusive or exclusive talent management approaches; considers talent and talent management definitions in a societal setting and examines social aspirations in relation to localisation of employment issues. Drawing on the psychological contract concept the paper assesses the transferability of global talent management ideas to the societal domain focusing on the citizen worker and employer relationship. It advances the case for a capabilities approach to examine and advance skills supply and other societal outcomes from the deployment of talent management frameworks.
