Global talent management strategies and activities, including recruiting, are influenced by a complex web of challenges resulting from the interaction of industry and organizational factors with institutional and cultural forces. This chapter focuses on reviewing global recruiting research in three main areas: internal global recruitment, external global recruitment and global relocation. It considers how different types of global assignments, various recruitment activities, individual differences and parent, host and third country factors influence global recruitment outcomes. The chapter highlights that global recruitment systems and associated outcomes are influenced by a variety of factors that span multiple levels of analysis and propose ideas for future research directions. Research on sourcing or identifying high potential talent, desired characteristics to target and external recruiting strategies for attracting internationally mobile talent, is considered. Global recruitment is at the dawn of an increasingly important era of research and practice because it is a foundation for global talent management strategies.
