INTERNATIONAL NURSING REVIEW, 2022 (SCI-Expanded)
Aim To determine the effect of talent management on job satisfaction and organizational commitment of nurses and the mediating role of job satisfaction. Background Talent management plays a critical role in attracting, developing, and retaining nurses and is effective in the formation of job satisfaction and organizational commitment. Methods This correlational study sample consisted of 482 volunteering nurses who were selected through a convenience sampling method. Data were collected using an information form, the Talent Management Scale, the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire, and the Organizational Commitment Scale. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation analysis, single linear regression, and hierarchical regression analysis. The Baron and Kenny model was used to determine the mediation effect. Findings Talent management affected the intrinsic, extrinsic subdimensions of job satisfaction and the total score and the affective commitment, normative commitment, and continuance commitment significantly and positively. Job satisfaction had a full mediating role in the effect of talent management on affective commitment and continuance commitment and a partial mediating role in affecting normative commitment. Conclusion Talent management in organizations can increase nurses' job satisfaction and organizational commitment and nurses' job satisfaction can play a mediating role in the effect of talent management on organizational commitment. Implications for nursing and health policy This study demonstrates that nurse managers and decision-makers should adopt talent management practices in nursing. Desired results such as nurses' job satisfaction and organizational commitment can be achieved by focusing on the development of nurses' talents.
