Creating and maintaining a competitive and productive workforce rests on the ability of an organization to identify exceptional talents which on the long-run would yield the much increase in productivity. The objective of this study was to ascertain the extent to which talent attraction influences employee commitment in State Universities in South East Nigeria. A sample size of 331 was attained from a population of 1929 employees of the five State Universities using Taro Yamane’s formula. The formulated hypotheses were tested using Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient with the aid of Statistical Package for Social Sciences version 24. The results from the analysis showed that a positive relationship does exist between Talent Attraction and employee commitment. Conclusions and recommendation were made in line from the result findings.
