The impact of talent Management (HRM) practices on the affective organisational commitment among employees in the information technology sector was investigated. The study is case based and was carried in Experion Technologies Pvt. Ltd., located in Technopark, Trivandrum, Kerala. Purposive sampling was used to select 58 software engineers who form the sample of the study. Questionnaire was used as the data collection tool. Pearson correlation and Regression analyses were used to draw the relationship between talent management variables and organisational commitment. The results showed that organizational commitment of employees depends more on the selection practices , work environment and recognition practices of the organisation. The results have a great implication for the information technology sector in India.
