Creating and maintaining an effective succession plan without the right tools is an almost impossible task. Traditionally these plans exist as spreadsheets and PowerPoint files with limited ownership, resulting in employees maintaining a costly process that is time-consuming, difficult to implement and immediately out of date.
Without an accurate, detailed and accessible succession plan, organisations are vulnerable to debilitating leadership gaps, high replacement costs and lost opportunities through ineffective employee career pathing.

This tool allows for bench strength to be automatically updated and instantly accessible across your organisation in a visual format. Allow relevant managers to easily access and update their relevant succession plans.
