talentmap® was developed as a business tool which helps employers build and implement their people strategy. It is supported by the main employer organisations as well as the Governments in Westminster, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Based around 5 themes, the talentmap® Framework helps employers consider the broad range of things that might help their business. The 5 themes are logically grouped to allow focus, but also to encourage employers to 'cross-over' into aspects of skills and talent development that they may not yet have considered. The framework:

  • is a simple way for employers to understand and engage with education, employment and skills systems across the UK
  • sets out for employers the priority action areas where they can build talent and skills to improve performance in their businesses or organisations
  • offers employers of all sizes and in all sectors the building blocks to create a plan for developing talent and skills
  • uses common employer-led language.
