The article discusses how Alan Warner, head of talent management at Society of Personnel Offices in Government Services (Socpo), is aiming to shake things up in government personnel departments in Great Britain. Warner finds juggling his role as director of people and property at the Hertfordshire County Council with his duties at Socpo works well. His first initiative as head of talent management is to spearhead new research aimed at challenging the way public sector employers think about talent management and how far they will go to identify outstanding staff. However at the same time Warner is trying to debunk the myth that talent management is just about looking at future leaders. Socpo is planning its second annual Public Sector Jobs Week next year--a dedicated week of media activity and publicity designed to promote a positive image of public sector employers.
