Talent management is one of the hottest buzz terms in the Human Resources industry right now, but the practice of succession planning is relatively new to many HR professionals and business leaders. Effective succession planning depends not only on the capability of an organization to identify business continuity risks, but also on its capability to identify talent, as well as the extent to which these capabilities are understood and exercised throughout the organization. This webcast explores how the trend now, driven by global events, economic imperatives and workforce demographics, is to move towards succession planning that addresses the entire organization. The webcast shows participants how to expand their perceptions and approaches to consider the rapidly changing environment, and the significant part that succession planning can play in a company's talent management strategies.

This webcast will discuss:

  • The challenges faced by today's organizations, both external and internal
  • Questions to consider in existing or proposed succession management initiatives
  • Valuable methods for identifying high-potential successors
