Abstract

This study aims to identify how Irish hotels define talent and what attributes they value in their employees. With this definition, the research aims to evaluate if the implementation of their talent management strategy is in line with their own definition of talent.

In order to answer the objectives of this research, a qualitative method was used in the form of semi-structured interviews with senior managers in a sample of hotels located in Ireland.

The findings indicate that hotels in Ireland are aligned in their definition of talent and the attributes they most value in employees. However, there were variations in the implementation of talent management and development practices which indicates that the definition does not directly influence the choice of talent management practice.
