HRLTT – Delivering an Effective Succession Planning Strategy

November 14, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Hosted by Lisa Warwick, Director of Talent, Leadership & Learning at Skyscanner

According to Barton for Talent Wins two-thirds of companies have no formal succession plan in place. Quite an alarming fact when you consider the risk associated with not identifying and growing talent for leadership and business-critical roles. 

Whilst the traditional 9-box grid has previously been fundamental for supporting succession planning, is it still as relevant today? With many organisations identifying with being a meritocracy culture, how effective is the more traditional approach for both internal talent and the management teams executing the strategy?

Join us at this HR Leadership Think Tank, hosted by Skyscanner, to discuss effective succession planning and address the areas below:

  • Defining what and who ‘talent’ is for your business
  • Exploring alternative succession planning approaches
  • To tell or not to tell…? The question of transparency!
  • Embedding your succession planning strategy – training and upskilling the business, and supporting the approach through systems and technology
