Abstract

Employee engagement has been a subject of interest for many researchers in recent years. Companies are making deliberate efforts to ensure that their workforce remain productive and motivated. This is not only a means of gaining competitive advantage but also a chance for employees to display their talent and innovative ideas. This study aimed to address the contribution of talent recruitment on engagement. It involved a total of 445 respondents drawn from 62 listed companies in Kenya. Regression and correlation results for the study variables were determined in line with the study objectives. The study revealed some unusual results which indicated that talent recruitment actually has a negative influence on employee engagement for listed companies in Kenya. The study recommends that companies wishing to utilize talent should be careful not to disengage employees by making them have an inflated sense of importance. This study has reasonable implications for companies and researchers since the field data has provided some contradictory statements that may go against studies which have shown huge connections between common HR practices and employee engagement in Kenya and the world at large.

Key Words: Employee engagement, talent management, talent, talent recruitment
