Abstract

Our study examines how talent management affects both job satisfaction and employee retention at a public university in Egypt. The sample for the field study consists of a 105 administrative employees who work at Ain Shams University (a public university). The study instrument is a questionnaire that consists of four parts: talent management, job satisfaction, employee retention and the sample’s demographic variables. The study uses Cronbach’s Alpha, Ordinary Least Squares Regressions and the Kruskal-Wallis test. We find that the components of talent management (motivating outstanding performance, training and development, job enrichment) have a significant impact on job satisfaction and on employee retention but have no significant impact on the sample’s demographic variables (gender, age, education and experience). The contribution of the study is to examine how talent management affects job satisfaction and employee retention in a higher educational institution in Egypt, an Arab, Muslim, Middle Eastern country. Talent management research in Arab/Muslim countries, such as Egypt, remains mostly unexamined. By researching new countries and regions, we can help provide further insight for organizations on how to adapt their talent management practices to fit different national and cultural contexts.
