Corporate social responsibility and talent management in Turkey

Elaine Farndale, Dincer Atli

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Addressing the relationship between corporate social responsibility (CSR) and talent management, we examine these fields largely from the perspective of employee attraction. We first present the historical development of CSR, detailing its current standing in Turkey. We then go on to describe how talent management has developed, and its particular relevance in emerging markets. Pulling these two fields together, we explore how a firm's CSR activities can improve employer branding to attract and retain key human resources. Comparing the results of Capital Magazine's "CSR Leaders in Turkey" and "Most Admired Companies in Turkey" research (both conducted annually from 2009 to 2013), we are able to identify how corporate reputations are related to CSR in the specific context of Turkey.
