Exploring the links between corporate social responsibility and global talent management: a comparative study of the UK and Korea

Abstract: The link between Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Global Talent Management (GTM) is conspicuously absent from existing research on CSR. Our comparative study of CSR and GTM in the UK and Korea is one of the few empirical studies to examine the link between CSR and GTM strategy and how this relationship may vary in different national contexts. Our data revealed that CSR's link with GTM strategy is taken more seriously in the UK than in Korea. The reason for this is not primarily a matter of the management competences required to connect it with strategy. Rather, it is more closely related to the country's institutional and cultural contexts which lead businesses to demonstrate CSR in certain ways and influence people's views on responsible business. Implications of this cross-national research for both researchers and practitioners are discussed in the conclusion.
