ABSTRACT. The concept of High Performance Work System - HPWS is a multi-step procedure, requiring the coordination of activities of different organizational functions

outside the department of human resource management (HRM) and developing an appropriate strategy for communication between employees. The main pillar in the construction of HPWS is the involvement of employees.  The essence of HPWS is to create a system that would make the people employed in the company feel co-owners responsible for its existence and future. As it is commitment that is one of the main ingredients of “talent”, the purpose of this article is to attempt to explain what the role of talent management is in the construction of a system of highly effective work. On the basis of the available literature the article presents de nitions of “talent”, as the management of the potential depends on the understanding of its essence. The paper presents talent management best practice, individual processes of creating a high performance work system and analyzes the determinants of effective talent management. Particular attention was paid to the role of talent in the construction of HPWS.
