Abstract/Summary This study aim to explain why talent concentrates to IC(industrial clusters), and how HR-environment and talent growth do effects on regional attraction. Regional attraction is defined as the regional capability of attracting and retaining workers and immigrants. The sample of this study was collected from four industrial clusters in China. HR-environment consists of micro-HR-environment measured by HRM (the level of enterprise's human resource management), and macro-HR-environment measured by EE(economy environment), HRPE (HR policy environment), LSE (living setting environment), and CE (culture environment). Exploratory factor analysis and hierarchical regression were conducted to analyze data. Results of hierarchical regression indicated that micro-HR-environment and macro-HR-environment did interactive effects on talent growth. The results infer that high-quality talent-growth environment in IC is the ultimate cause that talent concentrates to IC. The paper can help to reveal why talent clusters to IC, and why talent grows better in IC than other regions. Moreover, it will offer theoretical support for government to make policies and programs to attract talent. The study illustrated how HR-environment does effects on talent growth. It also examined the immediate role of talent growth in the relationship between HR-environment and talent growth. These enhance the literature of HR-environment, regional attraction and talent agglomeration.
