Succession Planning and Talent Management

A recent survey shows that 35-40% of US employees plan to change jobs within the next 12 months. How will that impact your business?

Are you prepared for the chaos of replacing 2 out of every 5 employees?  A memory drain occurs when top performers leave or retire.  Some will be key employees and top salespeople.  And customers often leave with them. 

When “what if?” becomes “now what?” – will you be prepared by having the right people in place with the right skills at every key position?

In ‘the old days’, organizations did something called ‘succession planning.’  In this process, a ‘successor’ or heir apparent to a key employee (CEO, founder or other high-level company executive) was identified and then ’groomed’ to step into the leader’s position when they decided to depart into a peaceful retirement after a long, successful career with the firm.  And everyone lived happily ever after.   That doesn’t work anymore.

Talent management has replaced succession planning.

To ensure your company’s long-term success, every key employee must have a development plan that matches them with the duties and responsibilities that will maximize their performance, employee morale, and company success – both now and throughout their career.
