What's All This Talk about Abolishing the Annual Review? Webinar, October 1, 2014

Building a Succession Process That Works Webinar, October 14, 2014
Nearly every CEO is talking about succession planning and rightfully so. Businesses today are looking at two disturbing trends: the impending mass exodus of baby boomers from the workforce and the growing mismatch between the skill demands of employers and the skill supply of the workforce. Having an effective succession program in place can help ensure that you have replacements ready to fill critical roles, deepen the pool of talent in your organization, advance diversity efforts, and promote the development and growth of your top talent.

In this webinar we'll share the primary factors to consider when creating a succession-planning process, including defining the scope of your plan such as whether to include all employees or just high-potentials and whether to focus on replacement planning or more robust talent pipeline development. We will share tools to identify and analyze critical positions, methods for evaluating current talent, and tools for tracking and keeping your plan up to date. We'll also discuss key considerations such as how to know if your organization is ready for a succession plan, the importance of buy-in from the top, and the connection with other talent management programs.
