Research Handbook of International Talent Management

Edited by Yipeng Liu

International talent management has become a critically important topic for scholarly discussion, in policy debates, and among the business community. Despite this, however, research into talent management tends to lack theoretical underpinnings, especially from an international, multidisciplinary, and comparative perspective. This Research Handbook fills this gap, bringing together a range of leading researchers, scholars, and thinkers to debate and advance the conceptualization and understanding of this multifaceted subject.

Chapter 13: Talent management strategies in the public sector: A review of talent management schemes in Southeast Asia

Celia Lee and Shahamak Rezaei


Governments are constantly striving to recruit, retain, reward, and develop their pool of public employees. When governments cannot recruit and retain capable individuals, it adds to the vicious cycle of weak governance. Therefore the ‘best and brightest’ must be recruited, developed and retained. As talent management in the public sector is still an underexplored research area especially in the Asian context, this chapter will review the talent management schemes in the public sector of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Cambodia. The schemes will be assessed by each country’s inclusivity vs exclusivity approach, so as to develop a framework based on tensions towards understanding talent management in the public sector context.
