Change is unavoidable in businesses in the modern economy. The workforce is constantly changing – people come and go, switch departments within the company or get promoted to new roles. This leaves costly gaps that can be detrimental to business progression and resources.

Succession planning will help you make the most out of any staff or departmental change by ensuring a plan of action so that when someone leaves, there is a capable new member of staff to take their place.

What’s Involved in Succession Planning?
