Objective: The purpose of this study is to design an appropriate performance appraisal model with a talent management approach for Iranian airports and air navigation companies.
Design / Methodology / Approach: The present study has been done as qualitative research. Accordingly, in order to present a comprehensive model of performance management with a talent management approach, the combined research method of Sandlowski and Barroso (2007) has been used. Thus, after identifying the categories, concepts and codes of performance management and talent management and evaluating its validity and reliability, the initial conceptual model of the research was formed and the explanation of the performance management model with the talent management approach became possible.
Findings: In the present study, 6 dimensions, 71 components and 153 indicators have been identified, and a performance evaluation model with a talent management approach has been developed based on them. The results show that the dimensions, components and indicators extracted from the meta-combined method (research model) are consistent with previous research but have provided more practical components and indicators.
Limitations and Consequences: Among the main limitations of this research, we can mention the time-consuming meta-combination method that the researcher, due to the fundamental nature of the subject and the need for meta-theory, is forced to choose this strategy to achieve the desired results.
Practical Implications: Using this model, organizational productivity can be improved based on the talents of employees and according to the evaluation of their performance.
Article Value Initiative: So far, no article has addressed performance management in this way with a talent management approach, which is why it is innovative.
