The Colorado approach to talent management is strategic, competency-based, and focused on performance. We consistently assess our HR processes to ensure that we are attracting and hiring the right people in the right jobs; engaging our employees in supportive, people-oriented work environments; encouraging continuous employee learning and development; proactively planning for change and innovation; and building a progressive, high performance workforce.
Our talent management system integrates workforce and succession planning, recruitment, training and development, performance management, employee engagement, and retention into a comprehensive process that manages people throughout the employment cycle--from recruitment to separation.
Continuously identify staffing issues and implement staffing strategies and plans that effectively address those issues.
State agencies/departments reduce knowledge, skills and competency deficiencies to zero in all occupational groups.
The Talent Management System promotes Merit System Principles , specifically
(1) Recruitment should be from qualified individuals from appropriate sources in an endeavor to achieve a work force from all segments of society, and selection and advancement should be determined solely on the basis of relative ability, knowledge and skills, after fair and open competition which assures that all receive equal opportunity. (§2301, Title 5, United States Code)
(7) Employees should be provided effective education and training in cases in which such education and training would result in better organizational and individual performance. (§2301, Title 5, United States Code)
The Talent Management System promotes the goals of the Colorado Revised Statutes, specifically
(a) That the state personnel system must ensure that the process of staffing state government is based on merit and fitness...(Colorado Revised Statutes §24-50-145)
(c) That a state personnel system based on and pursuing these fundamental goals is essential in order to maintain the confidence of the public in the state personnel system, to attract the best possible applicants for public employment, to create a workplace environment where state employees are motivated to excel, and to encourage long-term careers in state service...(Colorado Revised Statutes §24-50-145)
The Workforce Planning and Development Section develops, implements, and maintains systems that enable the State to recruit, hire, and retain an effective workforce. Guided by the Colorado Revised Statutes §24-50-145, the State's talent management strategy focuses on forecasting staffing needs and developing and retaining a qualified workforce.
