Five police forces in the East Midlands collaborate and select Talent 360 from Head Light Communications

In a first for the industry, Talent 360 has been jointly selected as the 360-degree feedback tool of choice by the East Midlands Police Collaboration. 

Exploiting the uniquely powerful multi-tenant Software as a Service platform, the forces of Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire will be able to run cross-regional assessment and development programmes as well as local programmes tailored for their own forces. 

The forces will be embedding 360-degree reviews as part of their Leadership and Management development work. These reviews make use of both the Chartered Management Institute’s indicators of performance and the well-respected Police Officer Leadership Potential assessment developed by Head Light Communications for Hertfordshire Constabulary.

Suzanna Smith, PRIDE Development Manager at Lincolnshire Police says:  “With public sector spending reviews on-going, higher than usual levels of scrutiny were applied to the business case. There was a strong requirement to demonstrate sound value for money which we were able to provide. This value for money combined with Head Light Communications’ track record of working with other forces and the clearly superior product, means that we can be very confident that this is the best decision for the forces in our region.”

Sue Scott, Director of HR at Lincolnshire Police says: “We are committed to working collaboratively across the East Midlands Forces especially at this time of austerity and this project enables us to support our on-going commitment to people development, so that we can continue to provide the best possible services to our local communities.”

This announcement comes hot on the heels of the news that British Transport Police has also selected Talent 360, representing the first UK-wide force to do so and bringing the total number of forces using Talent 360 to twelve.
