Every talent strategist asks four questions: What could my organization look like 5+ years from now? What talent will I need to lead that organization? What talent do I have now? What should I do to close the gap? Succession planning is a vital part of that strategic planning. Succession planning is a disciplined approach to identifying the most critical roles at an organization and developing a proactive pipeline to keep them filled. At this month’s Breakfast with the C-Suite, you will spend time with two seasoned HR executives, Jeff Lamb, EVP Corporate Services & Chief People Officer, and Paul Hoffman, SVP HR at Hunt Consolidated. This event offers exclusive access to senior executive thinking. You’ll learn about Jeff’s and Paul’s approaches and get their guidance on succession planning. You don’t want to miss this opportunity, whether you are a veteran in Talent Development or new in your role.
