Swailes, Stephen (2013) Troubling some assumptions: A response to "The role of perceived organziational justice in shaping the outcomes of talent management: a research agenda". Human Resource Management Review, 23 (4). pp. 354-356. ISSN 1053-4822

This Commentary is a response to the paper by Gelens, Dries, Hofmans, & Pepermans in this
Special Issue on the development of a theoretical framework for talent management. The authors'
central argument and hypotheses remain essentially untroubled here as this Commentary instead problematizes a central assumption of their paper which is commonly taken for granted in the talent literature—i.e., that talent is in shortage. In addition, suggestions for theory development are given and a more critical approach to the assumptions upon which talent management is based is advocated.
