Abstract:In this study we examined the relation between Talentmanagement and the performance of small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) in terms of employees‟ organizational commitment and intentions to quit. It is interesting to understand the relations between Talentmanagement and performance and whether investments within the attitude of employees are profitable for SME. Talentmanagement refers to the experience of employees with a set of ten HRM practices. These ten HRM practices are largely based on the research of Liu et. al. (2007). Moreover these HRM practices are as much as possible elaborate in concrete activities which companies employ to control employees to the organization strategy, and where they can develop their talents optimal. We investigate if the originally Talentmanagement-questionnaire will be a valid instrument to measure the employees experience with Talentmanagement within SME. Till now this originally Talentmanagement-questionnaire was only used for qualitative research within educational organizations. The respons in this study was 110 employees within 20 SMEs in Northern Netherlands. The results show us that investing in Talentmanagement has a strong positive relation with organizational commitment and a strong negative relation with the intentions to quit. Further Talentmanagement shows, as a set of ten HRM practices, that it contributes more to the explanation of organizational commitment and intentions to quit, than any individual HRM practice does. Finally the psychometric features of the Talentmanagement-questionnaire are good.
