HR Daily Advisor Research Report: High-Potential Employees and Succession Planning
Several times a year, the HR Daily Advisor Research Team conducts detailed research into pressing, contemporary HR challenges to highlight best practices and common policies and procedures. The team accesses its exclusive database of more than 250,000 active HR practitioners to find out how HR managers are handling challenges in the real world.
In September 2015, the HR Daily Advisor Research Team conducted the HiPos and Succession Planning Survey. Sponsored by Halogen Software, the survey delved into topics such as: What are real-world organizations doing with HiPos? How do they identify them? How do they retain them? Why do they leave?
