Talent management and succession planning

Course summary

An organisation's greatest resource should be its people, but too often talent is under-utilised or even ignored. Too many good people are lost through poor planning or a lack of engagement, often leaving organisations without the skills they need to succeed. Managers and teams can often be too slow to develop the people they may soon be calling on to step-up and take on more responsibility.

This one-day Talent management and succession planning course will equip you with the tools and strategies you need to plan for your future HR needs and to be better able to build a resilient team. The course explores how to engage and develop staff, and to ensure that your organisation gets the best from its most important resource from the moment they arrive.
