Our Ambition for Talent is that it mobilises the many, rather than a special few, which unleashes potential across the whole workforce driving greater retention, skill development, mobility and pipelines to critical roles within and across each ICS, enabling and supporting whole system talent management.
Our purpose is to…
Work collaboratively to agree and embed a common approach to identifying, developing and deploying our talented people across the system. This will enable us to deliver a health and social care system around the needs of patients and communities. We do this through inspiring new thinking, sharing expertise and fostering new initiatives that create and spread new knowledge practices and capabilities.
Our aims and objectives are to….
• Agree our definition of talent management
• Co-create and make the best use of the tools and resources we have available to us to identify, develop and retain our talented people
• Jointly identify our current and future people/leadership requirements
• Build local talent footprints at ICS level in response to local workforce needs and priorities. This will support systems and organisations to identify and grow their own talent and deploy and retain talent across organisational boundaries
• Know where our critical vacancies are, and work together to share and deploy our talented people to fill our critical roles
• Influence our organisations and systems to engage more effectively in local talent management approaches. Working to influence a shift in mindset to a system wide approach and a culture of seeing all our people in terms of talent and potential
