The Macro Talent Management (MTM) field was established in 2015 within the context of increasing globalization, interconnectedness, and the growing search for national competitive advantage (Khilji, Schuler & Tarique, 2015). More than five years later, we are witnessing a surge in workforce disruption and mounting socio-economic pressures, which underscore the importance of further developing our understanding of MTM. This is primarily due to unresolved geopolitical tensions, rapid technological advancement, decreased employee engagement, and the changing government policies (which impact immigration policies, business regulations, talent migration, onshoring decisions, and regionalization) (Mercer, 2019). Most recently, the global COVID-19 pandemic and its widespread impact on organizations, employees, and societies has accelerated many environmental shifts and resulted in enabling greater use of flexible work arrangements globally (Frankiewicz & Chamorro-Premuzic, 2020; Hancock & Schaninger, 2020). Thus, while further enhancing the relevance of MTM to organizations today, such trends also compel us to reorient our understanding of MTM and its conceptualization.

Within this backdrop, this LIVE panel symposium engages a group of panelists in a moderated, interactive discussion of the following priority areas of focus:

(1)  the future of MTM;

(2)  the panelists' interpretations of the global context and its impact on MTM; and

(3)  their respective views on how to advance the field in recognition of today's disruptive external contexts, including the COVID-19 pandemic and the post-pandemic world.
