Abstract: Talent management has been recognized by many authors as an important human resourse practice in the retention of employees. Retaining talented employees has become one of the major priorities of organizations and the key differentiator for human capital management. In todays rapidly moving dynamic, uncertain and highly competitive global markets, firms worldwide are facing major decisions and challenges in the global talent management. Companies are discovering that, not only is it becoming increasingly difficult to recruit top talent, but that they are running the constant risk of losing the ones they have to competitors. Consequently talent management is now viewed as a tool to strengthen organizational capability through individual development, performance enhancement, careerdevelopment and succession planning. In Kenya, many organizations have not yet embraced the concept of talent management and thus face critical challenges in recruitment and retaining of talented staff. Talent management is crucial because expertise is a must for proficient performance.
