ABSTRACT

The study examined the relationship between talent management and organizational goal attainment at selected manufacturing firms in Akwa Ibom State. The study adopted a cross-sectional research design. The population of the study consisted of two hundred and forty-eight (248) staff of manufacturing firms in Akwa Ibom State. The sample size was 153 staff using Taro Yamenes sampling technique. A questionnaire was used as the instrument for data collection. The hypotheses were tested using ordinal logistic regression through the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) Version 23.0. The findings revealed that there is a significant positive relationship between performance appraisal and organizational goal attainment (PA, 3.024, PV = 0.003) and reward and organizational goal attainment (R, 4.323, PV = 0.000). Based on the findings, the study concluded that talent management is related to organizational goal attainment. Therefore, the study recommended that management engage in effective performance appraisal by providing feedback and coaching to improve the talent of staff in the pursuit of organizational goal attainment. Management should provide intrinsic and extrinsic rewards to motivate the talent of staff with the aim of achieving goals and growth, which will lead to the attainment of organizational goals by selected manufacturing companies in Akwa Ibom State.
