8 The Need for a Fresh Approach 1. Scarcity of New Talent 2. High Cost of Turn-over 3. Lack of Employee Engagement & Associated Costs, including Job Fit (Suitability) 4.

9 1. Scarcity of New Talent According to the Center for Creative Leadership, an astonishing 66% of senior managers hired from the outside fail within 18 months. 10,000 baby boomers A DAY will reach retirement age now to 2030.
10 1. Scarcity of New Talent Over the past decade, talent has become more important than capital, strategy, or R&D. For many companies, that means that people are the prime source of competitive advantage. Talented people, in the right kind of culture, have better ideas, execute those ideas better and even develop other people better. ~War for Talent McKinsey & Company
11 2. BEYOND SUCCESSION PLANNING
12 2. The Cost of Turnover According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) the costs of turnover include four classifications: 1. Separation processing costs 2. Replacement hiring costs 3. Training new hire costs 4. Lost productivity or business costs
13 3. Lack of Employee Engagement Companies try many things, yet according to Gallup s 2013 State of the American Workplace report, 50% of employees merely put their time in. 20% act out their discontent in counterproductive ways costing the US economy approximately half a trillion dollars each year.
14 US Employee Engagement Only 30% of employees are actively committed to doing a good job. Business people and academics asked Gallup, What s more important people s natural FIT (SUITABILITY) with their role or how ENGAGED they are in their job?
15 JOB FIT is More Important Gallup s research across industries shows that engagement leads to improved profitability, productivity, customer metrics and lower turnover. But talent for a role is a requisite for success. Gallup s research reveals that about one in 10 people possess the talent to be a great manager.

34 Survey Conclusion Companies recognize the importance of talent management But they need the right system to integrate the hiring process with talent development and talent management.
35 Bersin by Deloitte Findings 86% of companies say they have no analytics capabilities in the HR function. Moreover, 67% rate themselves as "weak" at using HR data to predict workforce performance and improvement. Despite the efforts within many companies to improve succession planning, the overall pipeline for leaders is weak. Large companies, especially, are guilty of not priming the pump, with successors identified for just 10% of their firstlevel leaders and 19% of their midlevel leaders.
36 Bersin By Deloitte BEYOND SUCCESSION PLANNING
37 Sustaining a Succession Planning Strategy with the 4 Pillars D We must begin with critical Decision points E Eligibility factors are key in assessing the talent pool S The most difficult to assess is the JOB FIT, also called Suitability P The 4 th pillar provides a snapshot of an individual s Performance level
38 D = Decisions What level of confidentiality or transparency will be provided to all employees? Has the board been informed and engaged in the strategy? Will the strategy be restricted to just High Potential (HiPo) candidates, and at what levels? Or is it open to all employees? Will career planning be integrated in the process? Will the approach be replacement planning, focusing on specific jobs and geographies, or talent pool driven, where the approach fosters development of a talent pipeline resulting in a broad base of candidates for any and all jobs? Will it be an employee-driven system in which employees can explore options, express interest in certain opportunity areas, input their credentials and be an ongoing transparent process to encourage engagement? Or will the system be centrally controlled with employees participating on an invitation basis? Will the approach be integrated with external recruiting capabilities or be restricted to internal talent? What documented goals will be established? These could include: Mitigate the increasing costs and effort of external recruitment Improve employee engagement and retention Meet the career development expectations of employees
39 E = Eligibility for the Next Role Consideration must be given and weighted for areas such as: Education level Experience Certifications Global experience (if needed) Geographic preferences
40 E = Eligibility for the Next Role Skills Do you have highly skilled needs? What is the cost of losing those skills? What is the impact of those skills on your business success? Examples of potential vulnerability: engineers, chemists, seasoned managers, analytics specialists, etc.
41 S = Suitability (Job Fit) The most difficult area to assess, and typically the most neglected or poorly done, is the job fit, or Suitability, best measured with a formal assessment process and with technology. Motivation for the job Attitudes Interests Work preferences Work values Interpersonal skills Fit with their supervisor
42 S = Suitability (Job Fit) People are hired because they CAN do the job (eligibility), they leave or are fired because they DON T do the job (suitability). Hard data on the squishy people stuff (suitability) is available for making keep/don t keep decisions and for managing the career paths of incoming and high potential employees.
43 P = Performance Now Performance ratings should be accounted for in the overall assessment of the employee. In addition, key questions like the following may be considered. Has the individual: Demonstrated strong operational performance in a variety of areas? Established a cadence of personal accountability? Taken initiative and demonstrated strong leadership competency? Managed employee performance effectively (if in a management position)?
44 How is your high potential doing in his or her current role? Who is measuring that performance? How reliably? 9 Boxes is still opinion-based. Who is keeping track of their career trajectory and their desires? Millennials care very much about this. How reliably? P = Performance Now
45 Poll: What would you consider the biggest obstacle to implementing a program that would take you beyond your current succession planning process? The TIME that it would take The MONEY that it would require Managing your RISKS related to a change Executive level support Other
