The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) has been charged with delivering unprecedented reform over the last few years. To support our LGPS members we are conducting a programme of research in 2018 examining challenges around staff resourcing and talent management within the LGPS.
Our research aims to:
- Understand the different ways funds are being resourced and managing talent to deliver the best outcomes for members and;
- find out the challenges funds are facing and what actions are being taken to overcome them.
Outputs from the research will enable us to support LGPS funds by sharing and promoting examples of best practice, identifying different approaches and addressing any emerging challenges. Findings will be published in early summer 2018.
How to participate in our research
The first stage of the research is an online survey which has been sent out to all Chief Financial Officers (or relevant equivalents). The deadline for completing the survey is Friday 9th February 2018. If your Chief Financial Officer (or relevant equivalent) has not received a link to the survey and your fund would like to take part please contact Kate Boulden: email@example.com
Case study development
The next stage of the research is happening in early 2018 and will include more detailed interviews with a number of funds and similar private sector Defined Benefit schemes to get an in depth understanding of how they resource and manage their talent.
We will be contacting schemes directly about becoming case studies, however if you have undertaken any innovative actions around resourcing or talent management please contact Kate Boulden: firstname.lastname@example.org
