APS Talent Management
Talent management is the systematic attraction, identification, development, engagement, retention and deployment of individuals to ensure they are equipped and confident to make their best contribution to their agency now and in the future in service of the Government of the day and broader community.
The purpose of talent management in the APS is to build strong and diverse pipelines for leadership and other critical roles. It contributes to Action 3 of the APS Workforce Strategy 2025 by supporting the APS to adopt a systematic approach to identifying, developing and retaining high potential employees.
On behalf of the APS, the APSC supports the Secretaries Talent Council and Deputy Secretaries Talent Council, who manage the Senior Executive Service talent processes, and maintains common tools and guidance to support APS agencies who manage talent processes for those at the Executive Level and APS classifications.
