Talent & Career Conversations

Developing our potential...

Working together to enable our people to fulfill their potential with, and for, our communities

"We believe that talent is something that can be nutured and developed in everyone, not just the few. We want to inspire and support people to grow and develop their careers and recognise the value that a diverse workforce can bring to the health and care of our communities"
Our aspiration...
"Our aspiration is that all staff working in health and care feel supported to develop their potential in their role and, should they desire to progress, be clear about how they can develop into their next role."
Why do we need to develop our workforce?
  • Staff feel valued and motivated when there are growth opportunities
  • Helps us to succession plan
  • Encourages continuous learning
  • Increases staff retention - staff are more engaged and want to stay with us
  • Builds a high-performance workplace
  • Increases productivity
Person-centred career conversations

We know that many things throughout the stages of our lives can affect how we feel about our work and our desire to progress.

Career conversations are a personalised approach to supporting employees whose priorities may be changing. 

Managers who understand the needs of their staff and are equipped to support them at all stages of their career are more likely to enhance the working lives of individuals and develop more engaged and productive teams.

Career conversations can take place at any time or be part of a formal process such as appraisal or supervision.

We have created the Person-Centred Career Conversation Toolkit to support managers to have positive conversations with their teams regarding the development and support they need to thrive in their role and develop their career should they choose to do so.
