Identify & develope future leaders with the Web App Succession Planning for Dynamics 365 for Talent
Succession planning is a process that ensures your company is prepared for the future. That way, when a key employee leaves, you already have someone in mind to fill their position.
Succession planning keeps your business moving forward during the inevitable changes that come with running a business. And such plans serve as an excellent tool for retaining your strongest performers, who often tend to be the type of employees who need to know where their career is headed.
Just like you need to know where your business is headed.
Be prepared to make succession planning an ongoing effort. You can’t just sit in a meeting for two hours studying your org chart, then go back to regular business and forget about it.
The best succession plans are living, breathing things that get reviewed and refreshed on a regular basis.
It’s a process that, once you start, you need to continue. It’s something your company should revisit annually to make sure people are on track and to see if there have been any changes or movement within the organization.
