dc.description.abstractABSTRACT Objective of the study: The objective of this study has been to explore the talent management process of form-ing talent pools in the context of a single company. The research question is related to finding out if talent pool inclusion and participation in a talent development program can affect the work engagement and organisational commitment of talents. Research targeted at investigating the process of forming talent pools is scarce, and the aim of this study has been to address a gap in this research. Research method: This research takes a qualitative approach to the research question. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with employees who have been included in the talent pool of the company. Findings: As the main finding of this study, it shows that talent pool inclusion and participation in the talent development program can have a positive effect on organisational commit-ment of those employees who have been included in the talent pool. Findings related to work engagement are two-fold. Talent pool inclusion shows to have a positive effect on the overall engagement, but at the same time its impact on daily work is limited.en
