Toward digitally enabled talent management in public administration – mission impossible?

Philip Rogiers

What was my dream when I was little?

I don’t exactly remember one single dream I had. I remember I always had many varying dreams. A common ground between these dreams was that I always wanted to become really good at something I am truly passionate about. 

What am I doing when I am not working on my PhD?

Sleeping! [wink]. I try to make use of free time to spend time with family and friends, stay fit, and do things that expand my vision of the world. Living with your eyes wide open is a paradigm close to my heart.

What is my PhD about?

Digitally enabled talent management in the public sector.

Why is this important for practice?

The War for Talent, a term coined in 1997, is alive and kicking in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environment, catalysed by digitisation. To survive in this digital landscape, public sector organisations need to step up their game to find, access and hire specialists – whose bargaining power has increased radically in an economy where short term engagements and employer branding have reached new heights. Exploring digital solutions to find, access and hire internal and external talent has become the new paradigm.

How do I like to be remembered after my PhD?

I hope not only to be remembered in the past sense! In the future I hope to be known as someone who doesn’t scare away from choosing the creative, yet more unconventional paths.

How do I see my future?

I see my future full of excitement and work on things I am passionate about. I strongly believe that a passion for your work will lift it to heights you cannot reach otherwise.
