Abstract

With globalisation and uncertainty in the business environment, more and more companies are revolving to their human capital to give them the competitive edge that will sustain their business and improve their bottom line. Talent is managed differently, which depends on the firm-specific knowledge required and utilised by the organisation. Talent is seen as a source of success of the organisation, depending on its managed recruitment practices. The competition for human capital has meant companies have aggressive strategies to recruit top talent. This study is aimed to investigate the recruitment practices and talent management among SME manufacturing workers in Shah Alam. Data were collected from 110 manufacturing workers with various backgrounds by distributing questionnaires using a convenient sampling approach. The collected data of 110 were analysed by using the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) software. The findings indicate a significant positive correlation between recruitment practices (i.e., job analysis, recruitment sources, and selection method) and talent management. This research builds a strong basis and foundation for continued exploration to understand the complexity of this area of recruitment practices and talent management.
