Is your company at risk for losing leadership talent?
As your company’s workforce ages and employees retire, you are losing key talent. At the same time, younger employees may not be as loyal as their predecessors and may jump ship for opportunities elsewhere. If the leadership team isn’t paying attention, your organization may not have the bench strength needed to succeed long term.
Succession planning builds bench strength and ensures that your organization will have a next generation of leaders ready. With a proactive succession planning program in place, your company will be prepared for challenges including expansion, loss of a key employee, filling a new position, or employee promotions.
