This paper presents a short theoretical background of Talent Management in the field of strategic HRM and specifies the characteristics of the public sector with regard to Talent Management. Furthermore, we distinguish two main approaches of Talent management: exclusive and inclusive Talent Management. Exclusive Talent Management is aimed at a specific segment of employees in the organization while inclusive Talent management includes every employee of the organization in implementing the Talent Management policy. We use this framework to position the approach of the Flemish Government. The results of the document analysis and the expert interviews indicate that the Flemish government focuses on the inclusive Talent Management realm. The view is that every employee has talents and these talents must be developed, in order to achieve organizational and individual goals.
