Why do Talent Management?
Being successful in today’s complex, health and social care system means effectively identifying, developing and retaining our talented staff. For services to thrive and continuously improve we need to develop a talent pipeline able to support new leadership, skill development and succession planning. Our NHS sustainability and success is dependent on having the right people with the right skills in the right roles – with the right behaviours and values.
Managing our NHS Talent means supporting these individuals who can make a positive difference to organisational performance and drive improvements in patient care. Importantly, Talent Management is not a standalone concept but works as a ‘HR ecosystem’ to support organisational objectives and workforce strategy in an integrated and strategic way, and we need to improve its perception and adoption by all our staff.
