Succession Planning – appoint the right people to key positions

Identifying successors and planning career tracks are essential tasks in ensuring that key positions are never left unoccupied for any length of time. Planning the future in this way is decisive for the steady growth of the company and long-term success. Identify the most important line management and general management posts. Focus on these

key positions and make personnel risks transparent so that qualified successors can be appointed in good time. By plotting the trajectory of careers, you also show employees the way up and give them a glimpse of what they could achieve within the company.

What we do differently:

  • Focus on key positions
  • Make personnel risks transparent and thus proactively minimize risk
  • Systematically foster line and general management careers
  • Talent pools for high-potential employees
  • Support managers in their duties
  • Assure job satisfaction among employees by offering them prospects and through transparent planning

Identify potential easily

Identifying potential is a decisive factor in succession planning. The task should be set up in an intelligent but uncomplicated way so that the line manager will not have too much work with regard to drafting assessments and so that the most important information is saved straight to the application. You should also ensure that the potential assessment is drawn up according to requirements, independent of rigid career tracking processes.

Not only can a manager submit an assessment of a high potential candidate, she can also assess the risk of the relevant employee leaving. This is important for planning future appointments to key positions.

Comparison & Calibration

Often, recruiters check the internal talent pool before they look outside the company for suitable candidates. Vacancies can be instantly seen in the software and potential successors are flagged. In a matter of clicks you can compare all potential candidates for the job, including key data.

Build up talent pools & post internal job ads

HR and managers can advertise talent pools in order to recruit internally for current projects or to win participants for training and development programs. With regard to personnel development, talent pools can also be leveraged for targeted building of competencies and thus careers in management and/or in specialist fields can be systematically promoted. Employees can apply for internal postings and advance their own professional development. This raises employee satisfaction and makes planning transparent.
