It is common for the succession planning process to identify future vacancies for which there are no suitable internal candidates. In such cases, a recruitment plan would be developed. We have the experience to develop or review performance management systems. Such systems are useful in assessing the performance of individual employees, setting future goals, identifying career development needs and skills shortfalls, which are subsequently addressed through training.
Once the system is developed, employees are then trained in using it. Managers and supervisors may also be given training/support in objective setting and in the identification of training needs.
