Succession planning in three steps

Implement your personal succession management program in three practical phases. Start by identifying your high-potential employees and areas of risk. Then see who you need to develop and retain. Next, define and build your talent pools. Then, when you need to fill a key position, you're ready to fill it.

Future-proofing for your company

Develop deep and broad talent pipelines in all key areas — not just leadership roles. Understand the skills and competencies required to support your organization’s strategic plan, and closely align succession planning processes with corporate mission, vision and values.

Top talent stays where it belongs — with you

You can't keep them if you don't know who they are. And they won't stay if they don't see a great future for themselves within your organization. Know who your-high potential, high-performing employees are, and chart a path for their future success — and your organization's success.

Succession planning software helps keep your top talent

Fill key positions without lengthy searches

It's almost like having a bunch of understudies waiting in the wings. Whenever you have an opening for a new leader or key contributor (critical replacement or a new role), you have a host of qualified candidates in your talent pool, just waiting for the chance to shine. Your organization never has to suffer through a protracted talent search.
