One key corporate responsibility is to enable people to use and develop their individual talents.

Through literature survey eleven factors contributing to talent management have been identified which are: creativity&resourcefulness, problem solving&decision making, communication, team building, entrepreneurship, leadership, general managerial skills, learning ability, performance measurement, career development, inspirational capabilities. Various statistical tests like inter item analysis, correlation analysis, multiple regression are performed to examine the relationship between different factors and talent management on a sample of 100 trainees of ACC who were attending their training program at Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee. The results reveal that among all other factors inspirational capability is the prime factor contributing to talent management. On the other hand organization should put in more effort to creativity and innovativeness as these are the essential ingredients in the current global competitive environment for any organization to survive.
