The Impact of Talent Management on the Performance of Employees at Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital (BDTH), Kaduna
South Asian Journal of Social Studies and Economics,
Purpose: The study's goal is to determine how talent management affects workers' productivity at Kaduna's Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital (BDTH). The study specifically looks at the impact of hiring talent, researches the impact of training and development, analyzes the impact of career growth, and investigates the impact of the performance management system. Despite the money poured into them, some organizations continue to perform poorly. The reality is most corporations just lack the qualified personnel needed to realize their desired goal. Poor hiring practices, the difficulty to recruit and retain suitable employees, and the absence of performance management tools have all harmed personnel management in various ways. 757 employees of the Kaduna Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital make up the study's population. 262 employees make up the study's sample.
Methodology: The study used a descriptive research design. The instrument for gathering data was a questionnaire. To analyze the data for the study, SPSS version 20 was used. The study's key findings showed that performance management (61%), training and development (62%), talent acquisition (71%), and employee performance all had positive and substantial relationships with each other.
Findings: The study did, however, find a tenuous link between career progression (11%) and worker performance. According to the report, organizations should integrate talent management systems into all facets of human resource management and connect their talent management systems with their business needs. The study suggested conducting additional research to learn more about the topic. As a result, the statistics and effects for generalization will have greater reliability.
Conclusion: A majority of the respondents said that improved employee performance resulted from identifying and training candidates to replace important people who leave a firm. The majority of respondents thought that having clearly defined succession plans that allow staff members to take on leadership responsibilities improved employee performance at BDTH. To improve employees' performance, systematic training is necessary. An appropriate work environment that fosters creativity in employees, according to the majority of respondents, is crucial for improving employees' performance.
