Talent Management

Talent Management Hub

The NHS Leadership Academy have been working together with local delivery partners to develop a suite of talent management resources, enabling everyone's talents to be maximised.

The Leadership Academy have worked closely with a range of NHS organisations and staff to develop and refine their approach.

Among the most frequently asked questions, the most common have been "where do we go to get started with talent management?” and “how do we access the right tools and supporting materials?”

The NHS Talent Management Hub has been created to provide this much needed resource, and to be the online home of the NHS Leadership Academy's talent management materials.

26 October 2016

10:30 to 15:00, The Met Hotel

Our October workshop moves a step forward from talent awareness and definition – discussed in our July workshop – to looking at Talent Strategy.

Paul Turner, Professor of Management Practice from Leeds Beckett University and respected author on Talent, will be guiding us through the day.

He will help us understand how best to construct a strategy for talent and how to secure the executive-level buy-in that meets your organisational objectives.

Participants will learn how to use Paul’s Talent Strategy Framework, a step-by-step process for working through your own talent strategy.
