ABSTRACT
In knowledge based economy employees, with their knowledge and motivation, play the key role in building competitive advantage of companies. Constantly growing mobility, rapid changes in economy and deepening shortage of qualified candidates who suit organisations’ needs lead to aggravating “war for talents”. Talented employees, aware of their skills, look for the employer who provides not only material incentives but also proper development conditions, which include creative tasks and cooperation with people who share the same interests. The aim of the paper is to present the characteristics of talent management in organisations which use servant leadership. Literature analysis revealed that the concept with the highest level of congruence with servant leadership is inclusive talent management focused on employees development. In that approach the key factors are: matching talents to the organisation, building strong relationships between leader and his followers and tailoring development programs to needs and ambitions of every employee.
