As the global workplace becomes increasingly complex, there is a need to develop and retain a skilled workforce able to support students as they embark on potentially global careers. This paper explores a range of both innovative and award winning talent management strategies. These have been successfully implemented in the University sector and yet are of equal importance to industry.

- Practical and innovation strategies to support skill development. Including the first UK programme to achieve 100% of teaching staff recognised as Fellows of the Higher Education Academy (often using evidence from their CWIE activities).
- Supporting and mentoring staff for national and international recognition through success in schemes such as National Teaching Fellowship (Achieved the most in UK for the period 2008-14).
- Rewarding and recognising staff who support the student experience. Evidenced by 'The Thank You Awards' a student nominated scheme with typically 800 nominations. Winning these awards has been cited by staff as the pinnacle of their career. Excellent examples of where staff support students to make informed career choices.
- Building a culture of collaboration and support, through multi-disciplinary projects, inspiring conferences and networking fora.

At the end of the session participants will be able to see approaches that could be transferred back into their university or industry workplace.
