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 11: Training programmes to develop the ethicality of talents

Dominic Kreismann and Till Talaulicar


Ethics training programmes are widely used to strengthen the ethical competence of organizational members. This competence is crucially important to corporate talents who have to deal with challenges due to global competition, inter-cultural differences, environmental complexity and multiple stakeholder demands. International talent management systems should therefore include the development of this competence in order to tap the full potential of these individuals and to enable them to identify and solve ethically relevant problems successfully. In the present chapter, we introduce different notions of ethical competence and explain the necessity for international talent management systems to foster this competence. Subsequently, we provide an overview of moral development theories and elaborate on different design dimensions of ethics training programmes. Moreover, we compile empirical evidence to conclude from extant meta-analyses about the effectiveness of ethics training and resume with best practice suggestions as well as open issues for future research.
