Talent attraction, retention and development are important.

Here is one method, for further reading and reflection:

“The Civil Service uses Currently Estimated Potential (CEP) as one tool to plan for the career development of officers.

CEP is expressed in terms of the highest job responsibility level an officer is currently assessed to be capable of handling in the future. Hence an officer’s CEP may change with assessment over time.

CEP is assessed based on demonstrated “AIM” qualities, which stand for (1) Analytical and Intellectual Capacity; (2) Influence and Collaboration; and (3) Motivation for Excellence.

After a supervisor assesses his officer for CEP, the assessment is subject to counter-signing and ranking processes at the Ministry level, to ensure that the assessment is robust and fair.”
