Abstract

Recently, the relationship between responsible leadership and talent retention has been discussed in the literature. Retention of talent is perceived as a crucial component in an organisation’s business strategy where employees become the key set of stakeholders. However, the particular practices that result in retaining the most effective employees, specifically young professionals, and new managers, remain difficult to pinpoint. The aim of this research is to study the relationship between responsible leadership and talent retention. Existing literature on the topic has been reviewed to address the objective of this research. The findings indicate that there is a close association between responsible leadership and talent retention. Responsible leadership encourages leaders to lead their followers in a way that enhances their connection with society, the environment, stakeholders and with the organisation generally. The findings of the study further reveal that responsible leadership does not just influence talent retention, it enables autonomous motivation amongst employees and improves the performance of the organisation as a whole.
