Over the past few months, succession planning has fast become a focus for large organisations across Australia and New Zealand. Understandable, considering the importance of identifying and developing your most important resource – talent. Other flow on benefits of building key positions, include the minimisation of turnover disruptions, an increase in retention and improved job satisfaction.

This task is generally passed down from the board level and charged to a time-poor, overworked HR department. Without the right tools, manually creating and maintaining an effective succession plan is an almost impossible task. Traditionally these plans exist as spreadsheets and PowerPoint files with limited ownership, resulting in a costly maintenance process that is time-consuming, difficult to implement and immediately out of date. There is an easier way!

In this webinar, our very own succession planning veteran, Andrew Rees, outlines the high level strategy that goes into a succession plan. Andrew has worked with major organisations to implement customised workforce modelling modules to streamline the creation and maintenance of their succession plan.

The webinar succession planning topics covered include:

  • unlocking useful succession planning data sitting in your payroll system
  • how to create an easy to use, up-to-date succession plan based on real talent metrics
