Unconscious bias training

Succession planning
Yes, we start with strategic goals and leadership demands — and work back to succession strategy. We have designed our succession management plan to meet the changing needs of our business and invest in the development of leaders to drive engagement, retention and performance. Succession planning is a systematic approach to:
  • Building a technical/professional and leadership talent pool to ensure talent continuity
  • Developing potential successors in ways that best fit their strengths
  • Identifying the best candidates for categories of positions
Some jobs are vital to the organization and too critical to be left vacant or filled by anyone but the best qualified persons. Succession planning is critical to mission success and creates an effective process for recognizing, developing and retaining top leadership talent.
