Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service
Managing our talent
Talent management is the systematic attraction, identification, development, engagement, retention and deployment of individuals who are of value to an organisation, either in view of their ‘high potential’ for the future or because they are fulfilling business/operation-critical roles.
Talent consists of those individuals who can make a difference to organisational performance either through their immediate contribution, by developing their strengths or, in the longer-term, by demonstrating the highest levels of potential.
– Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, 2015
Over the next five years we will develop and implement a Talent Management Strategy, enabling us to:
It is important that there are no critical skill gaps and we maintain optimal resilience across the Service. It is also important that we are well-equipped to identify those who have the desire and ability to take on various new skills and responsibilities needed to take us forward and then develop and prepare these people for the future.
It is our ethos to develop people from within the Service wherever we can, because we believe that many of the best people to improve the Service already work here.
