Employing Succession Planning & Talent Strategy and Management
Organisations need to be strategic and proactive in how they identify, develop, engage, retain and deploy talented people. In order for them to thrive and be successful, they need to understand which posts are strategically important and have plans in place for when they become vacant.
Organisations also need to understand what ‘talent’ looks like so they can retain and motivate great people so that they maximise their performance – this is critical to continued success now, more than ever before. Succession planning enables organisations to make plans about ‘business critical’ posts - when talent management and succession planning are integrated, they are able to fully utilise their people to meet both individual and organisational objectives.
By the end of this highly interactive programme 'Implementing Succession Planning and Talent Management', you will have a guaranteed way to create a succession plan, and have a range of easy to use skills to manage and retain talented staff. It is run by an expert in the field who has practical and proven experience so that you discover everything you need to take a more strategic, objective and integrated approach to succession planning and talent management.
Participants will gain an understanding of how to create, design and implement a robust succession plan. They will be able to identify talent based on performance and potential – and have a definition of the latter that has a cultural ‘fit’ to their own organisation. Participants will be able to use a ‘retention toolkit’ to identify risks and keep their best staff so that the organisation grows and develops successfully.
