Talent Succession Planning is a deliberate and systematic effort by an organization to ensure leadership continuity in key positions, retain and develop intellectual and knowledge capital for the future, and encourage individual advancement.  

Organizations with talent succession planning processes foster a skills-oriented culture and have individuals prepared to take on leadership roles in the event of organizational growth, talent loss or management turnover.

Over 90% of younger workers say that working at a company with a clear leadership succession or growth plan would improve their level of engagement, while 62% said they would be “significantly more engaged” at work. (Hireology, 2015)
