This Episode: Talent and Succession Management

This week, Lucinda talks about talent and succession management strategies with a particular focus on smaller to mid-size organisations. Additionally, she busts through some of the more common succession planning jargon, to give you a far better idea of how to develop an effective talent strategy.

Key Takeaways

  • Indeed, in a smaller sized business, there is an advantage, in that roles can be tailored to the skills at hand, thereby better serving the business needs.
  • Furthermore, attracting external talent can be made far easier if we have in place a robust talent management strategy, that rewards those who have taken the time to develop.
  • When implementing a career progression pathway, it’s important to think about the ways in which progress, and their pace.
  • People will be far more motivated to try to progress, if the pathway to doing so is fair and balanced across the board.
