Addressing Talent Challenges

The four major talent challenges in the public sector are:

1) Doing more with less

2) Addressing the pressure of demographic changes

3) Identifying and retaining top performers and high-potentials

4) Filling leadership and talent gaps

A whitepaper report titled “Making the Best of It: Why Tough Times Make Talent Management Essential in the Public Sector” reveals how to cope with those four challenges.

One solution is enterprise learning, or e-learning. “Replacing traditional classroom training with e-learning is one way to demonstrate to employees and agency’s commitment to professional development without significant added costs,” the paper says.

Another solution might be to combine programs. For instance, the paper continues: “ Combining learning, performance and succession technologies allows you to see the leadership gaps in your organization and to assign development opportunities so that you’re prepared to meet those needs.”

The paper, which was written by Cornerstone on Demand, also goes into some detail on the best practices of establishing development plans, building a foundation of competencies, integrating career development planning with performance management, and building internal talent pools.
