Abstract: Talent management has been regarded as a critical factor for both organisational performance and employee outcomes in the 21st century. This study aims to analyse the effects of talent management practices on employee engagement and intention to leave. The study is based on four main parts of talent management as independent variables: employee recruitment and selection, training and development, performance management, and career management. A survey was conducted to gather data from telecommunication employees in Turkey. A total of 751 employees participated to the survey research. Findings indicated a positive relationship between talent management practices and employee engagement. There were significant relationships between talent management practices and employee engagement factors. There were also significant associations between talent management practices and intention to leave. This study revealed that talent management practices are significant predictors of employees' intention to leave. Turnover intention is negatively related with effective talent management practices.
