Talent Management

As the NHS faces the challenges of the future we need to know that the NHS is attracting and integrating individuals with the right skills and behaviours and are developing and retaining existing staff. We need to identify future potential at all levels and provide the development needed to achieve the highest standards of patient care, leadership and organisational performance.

Talent management supports our understanding of:

  • Where talent is now and in the future
  • What skills and experience that talent will need
  • What talent you currently have, where it is and how good it is
  • How you can best develop that talent to meet future needs

EMLA is working in collaboration with its members to develop a system that will o ffer a consistent approach to capturing talented people yet will have the flexibility needed to develop bespoke approaches within varied settings.

Talent Management Programme


In order to support those who are taking a lead role in talent management, we are offering a range of development opportunities.

A series of workshops have been designed to help you provide more effective talent management within your organisation, and specifically aims to:

  • Enhance your capability to effectively manage talent at individual, organisational and system wide levels
  • Support the adoption of a talent focused mind set
  • Enable you to effectively plan, engage, implement and evaluate talent management processes

The Talent Management Development Programme comprises three one day workshops, details of which are in the Workshop Outlines document, attached further down this page.

NHS Leadership Academy Toolkit

After much collaboration across the country the NHS Leadership Academy Toolkit is available by clicking here

Organisations across the country are also taking part in pilots with the new toolkit and will work with the NHS Leadership Academy to develop the toolkit.  There is already some great work taking place within organisations across the East Midlands and the NHS Leadership Academy tool has been designed to complement not replace any of the existing good work.
