The presented article is theoretical and analytical in nature. Its main purpose is to model how to build employee satisfaction in organizations focused on developing talent among employees through implemented talent management programs.

Material and methods:
The basis for writing the article was the results of our own research, carried out 2022, using the CAWI method on a representative sample of 280 companies with talent development policies. The main objective of the survey was to determine what strategies Polish companies adopt in terms of talent development in their organizations and what impact they have on employee satisfaction.

The results indicate the complex course of the process of building employee satisfaction, in which life satisfaction and job satisfaction should be taken into account. Areas significantly affecting the life satisfaction of an employee of a talent management organization are job satisfaction, work environment and development areas available to the employee.

On the other hand, work environment and development areas available to the employee are important for achieving job satisfaction.
