This study examined the relationship of talent management practices to employee job-related outcomes in the Indian manufacturing setting. Talent management practices included talent acquisition, talent development, talent engagement, and talent retention. Employee job-related outcomes of this study included intent to stay, job engagement, affective commitment, job satisfaction, and employee competency. This study used the social exchange theory and resource based view as the theoretical underpinning for the proposed TM model. The role of organizational culture as a moderator was also examined in the study.

The sample of the study consisted of 992 full time employees working in one of largest textiles and paper manufacturing organization of India with facilities located in two Indian states. Data is collected online through a questionnaire composed of several existing survey instruments. Response rate for the survey was high (62.98 percent). The primary method of data analysis was structural equation modeling.

Overall, the findings of the analysis showed a number of significant relationships among talent management practices and employee job-related outcomes. There were strong positive relationships between talent acquisition and affective commitment, talent engagement and job satisfaction, talent engagement and affective commitment, and talent retention and employee competency. The findings showed that organizational culture is significantly related to talent management and employee job-related outcomes. However, the organizational culture does moderate the relationship of talent management and employee job-related outcomes. The overall relationship between talent management and employee job-related outcome was found significant and positive.

The findings of this study identified a number of implications for the Indian manufacturing organizations. The study also provides a framework of talent management practices for future research.
