Abstract: The word talent is always in the news. Its utility is undying and all enveloping. It is occupying the center stage in the spheres of science, technology, education, sports and more visibly in the field of business and enterprise with a rage not seen before. Talent has emerged as an extremely confident and sensitive entity. Its message to one and all is Better prefer, possess and pamper me or you will perish (War for Talent). This Study aims to investigate the importance, process and present situation of managing talented employees in the sectors of IT and BPO. Human Resources Managers of select two IT and two BPO companies each took part in interview regarding the needs, recruitment, tools and management approaches of talented employees. The study revealed that having talented employees helps the firms drive and compete, but it is difficult to acquire such people. In the recruitment of new employees, personality and interpersonal skills were more important than educational background because candidates were deemed to be expert in specific sciences, so, what a candidate must have is personality matching the company s culture, especially the characteristic of working as a good team member.
