Benefits of Succession Planning
Succession planning is vital to future business success. Good succession planning will help to:
- Minimizes the disruption in the event of unforeseen circumstances
- Create a smooth transition in operations when other organisational changes are required
- Identify skill shortages within the organisation
- Avoid recruitment & training expenses by identifying existing staff as suitable successors
- Discover 'hidden resources' - individuals with high levels of competence who may not have previously been considered
In any organisation and/or enterprise it is becoming increasingly important that you are able to ensure that you have the right people, with the right skills and knowledge, operating at all levels across your whole organisation. It’s relatively easy to train and develop existing staff as you have some degree of control and influence over this, however, there are some situations that are sometimes difficult or even impossible to predict or control, such as:
- Early retirement
- Extended Maternity/Paternity leave
- Accidents resulting in long-term absence
Avoid the need for expensive recruitment agency costs by proactively developing the talent within your organisation.
