Top Talent

IBM in the UK is running a Top Talent program for future leaders for 100 people out of the 3000 in the UK Global Technology Services business. Basically a Talent management program for the top 3% of it’s employees in the UK and I made the list.

There had been Top talent programs in the past but nothing really happened it was just a tick in a box. This new program has a $1m budget, it runs for one year only and we’ve been told to be ambassadors for it, get people interested and wanting to be on the 2008 program.

So I have an advisor who’s assigned to me and three other TT’s, who you are encouraged to talk to as frequently as possible.

It’s all looking very interesting so far and I’m encouraged by the help I’m being given by Andreas my advisor. So if you’re working for IBM in the UK then work as hard as you can and ask your Manager about the 2008 TT program, it’s turning into a hugely beneficially program.
