Recruiting, retaining and managing digital talent is a critical challenge particularly for large, established companies that approach talent management in traditional ways. In this paper, we discuss preliminary findings from our ongoing research that examines this challenge and explores new models of managing digital talent in a world where these skills are so critical to the success of companies. We draw on existing literature and our interviews with talent management leaders in companies to develop a new framework with four talent management models. We describe our preliminary finding that high-performing companies transition to two emerging talent management models – Architecting and Curating – by building relational capabilities, which are facilitated by the design and management of digital workplaces.
