An annual review of talent in the organization – in addition to realistic, timely succession plans - is critical to the growth and sustainability of any organization. And it’s not just about executives. If the right leaders – at all levels – aren’t identified in a timely and accurate way, the business suffers. Critical roles remain open. Transitions become slow and ineffective. And leaders throughout the organization become frustrated.
On the flip side, a strong talent review approach and succession planning practices can build mobility, ensure recognition and foster retention at all levels. These efforts, when aligned with strategy, and introduced in a consistent, sustainable and measurable way, will lead to a more engaged and satisfied workforce.
But keep in mind: the effectiveness of talent review and succession planning efforts are limited if they're not able to predict the changing needs of your business. Lay the foundation for this work - and optimize it - to workforce planning. We can help you get it done quickly and effectively.
