    Abstract

    Talent development approaches in the UK have been driven by the need to develop a competitive, outward-facing, knowledge based economy. To this end, talent development strategies have become central to the creation of talent pipelines of suitably qualified and skilled individuals capable of servicing the needs of organisations across key economic sectors. In this chapter, we review talent development strategies that are being employed by UK organisations. Specifically, we will focus on the war for talent in the engineering, financial services and tourism and hospitality sectors before going on to explore talent development approaches and systems in the UK. Here, we will examine the UK vocational education and training system and use of expatriates in knowledge centred organisations. Finally, the chapter will draw some conclusions about the state of talent development in the UK.
