Buy vs. Make: the Right Succession Strategy?



Unfilled and unplanned vacancies cost companies about 50 percent more in lost revenue than the salary for the vacated job itself, according to a 2013 Mercer study.
And when a key talent at any level of the organization leaves and the position isn't filled quickly, morale drops, productivity suffers and turnover increases. Building leadership pipeline thus ensures business continuity and preparing for an uncertain future.

However, succession planning is not just about filling leadership positions but also planning for high potential identification and development from early on, to ensure organization is future ready.

For organizations to excel in today's competitive global market, succession management is imperative. In fact, organizations that successfully cultivate their next generation of talent, and engage and retain current employees can create a distinct business advantage.

In this webinar

  • Understand different facets of building leadership pipeline
  • Recognize the importance of building a business case for succession planning
  • Explore best practices for succession management and development
