High performers

As we all get our heads around the BBC's talent strategy, I'm grateful to reader Avu Perfurmer for pointing me to the programme for the Talent Management and Development Summit, being held at the Hilton in Canary Wharf in October.

Amongst the speakers is Damien Shieber, BBC HR Partner, Talent and Organisational Development, on the topic "Building a high performance culture with talent".  Damien joined the Hughes D'Aeth provisional HR wing in Birmingham in July, after a career path from Manchester University through Capita and RWE Npower.

Damien believes that the days of "rank and yank" should be behind us, encouraging managers instead to have "performance chats", and treat end-of-year assessments as "celebrations". Except, of course, if the chat is about redundancy, or being TUPE'd across to BBC Studios.

Damien is also hot on Bake-off and on customer service standards.
