Rupert McNeil, Government Chief People Officer is inviting all staff from across the Civil Service to take part in a Talent Management Survey, opening from 10 May and closing on 14 June.
Please see here to access the survey: Talent Management Survey: Your Views
Since 2015, talent management has been reviewed across departments and functions with the aim of improving how talent is managed across our organisation. Despite the challenges that Brexit and the pandemic have caused to reform, this survey is part of the long-term work to improve this across the Civil Service.
The Talent Management Team believe that developing the skills - and advancing the careers of civil servants at all levels requires an active approach.
With the first part of this research completed by HR Directors and Talent Management leads within departments and professions, valuable insights have already come to light. The team want to add to these insights by getting your views and personal experiences as the ‘customers’ of talent management. From your awareness and access to the range of development opportunities (i.e., the accelerated development schemes, mentoring, coaching) to talent management activities and tools (such as the nine-box grid). The team want to find out your experiences so they know what is working well, and what requires improvement. They won’t undermine successful approaches with a desire to improve things more widely, they want to build on what works while addressing overlooked issues and identifying areas of cross-cutting interest.
The team believes that the most valuable tool for benefitting staff from all walks of life is the inclusion of as many diverse voices as possible. Talent management should be supporting all members of staff in an inclusive way, therefore the broader our sample size, the more truthful our data will be to act upon.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this survey.
