Last year, researchers from the institute and the ESCP Europe Berlin and Paris campus conducted a joint project with Bombardier Transpotation, trying to measure the success of talent management, analyzing a talent development program of Bombardier. In detail, the project aimed at investigating the effect of Bombardiers Graduate Talent Management Program on Internal Network Building, Career Success, Affective Organizational Commitment and finally Talent Retention. The statistical analysis of the answers to a survey revealed that participation in the Graduate Program did lead to a better internal network, a better career success, a stronger commitment and a greater intention to stay. For the control group (employees who did not participate to the program), the link between talent management practices, the building of an internal network, objective career success and intention to stay could not be established. This study showed the effectiveness of talent management programs on employee retention.
