Abstract

Businesses operating in emerging markets invariably require their talent to be geographically mobile but organizational and individual needs do not always coincide. Drawing on framing theory, we demonstrate how organizational talent engage in framing processes to negotiate their social order when organizational mobility requirements are invoked. Emerging from this study is a typology of four talent mobility frame positions: acceptance, adaptation, avoidance and abdication. Our contribution is threefold. Firstly, we illustrate the role that framing plays in global talent management mobility practices. Secondly, we extend contemporary studies on global talent mobility by demonstrating how individual choices are enacted through frame positions. Thirdly, we show how having a flexible approach to managing global talent can facilitate not only the management of existing operations, but also enable expansion into new and emerging markets.
