Сontextual Factors of Talent Management in the Russian IT-Companies
The paper is based on an exploratory study into a new field of human resource management – talent management in the Russian companies. The objectives of the study are to examine the managerial interpretations of "talents" and identify the context factors that
affect the talent management practices in Russian companies. More attention is paid to the influence of the IT sector context on talent management discourse and practices. The empirical data have been collected during comparative longitudinal case studies of the leading Russian IT companies since the summer of 2015. The paper will contribute to the deeper understanding of specific emerging country as well as sector effects so far insufficiently covered in the theoretical and practical literature on talent management.
