Pam Bauer President, Strategic Resource Connection; Brittany Watson Director-Human Resources, Atkins
In today's highly competitive global environment, human capital is an organization's most important asset, often differentiating highly successful businesses from those that struggle. Yet, in the ongoing effort to develop a strong and capable workforce, many organizations focus almost entirely on hiring and training. They neglect succession planning--perhaps the most essential ingredient in building the talent required to meet the organization’s strategic goals.
In this interactive workshop session, you will learn how to follow the ADDIE for succession planning:
- Analyze talent gaps and talent pools
- Design succession plan
- Develop talent through coaching, action learning, shadowing, etc.
- Implement plan, including recruitment and retention strategies
- Evaluate success of plan by tracking selection, leader feedback and assessing response to changing needs
Join Pam Bauer, President Strategic Resource Connection (a baby boomer) and Brittany Watson, Director of Human Resources, Atkins (a millennial) in a dynamic opportunity to learn how your organization can use succession planning to achieve results and align business goals with human capital needs!
