Succession Planning

Prepare for Retirement & Succession

Over the next decade, more people will enter retirement than there are people entering the workforce to take their place. Succession planning is essential for organizations to make this critical transition. Organizations need a focused knowledge transfer program and tools to automate the employee development process.

When employees leave the workforce, the organization loses those employees' knowledge and skills.


WebMentor Skills™ gives you the tools you need to understand that loss and respond to it effectively.

“Understand the skills your organization is losing through retirement and attrition.”

Ask yourself these questions ...

  1. Are these POSITIONS still critical to the organization's success?

    Use the Role Profile Summary report to see if the skill and proficiency levels are defined correctly for the positions that are being vacated.

  2. What SKILLS do the departing employees possess?

    Use the Individual Skills Inventory report to catalog the skills and proficiency levels of departing employees in order to gain a better understanding of the skills that need to be supplemented.

  3. WHO are the best replacements?

    To determine the most qualified candidates for vacated positions, use the Team Builder tool to identify employees who have the smallest skill gaps relative to the open positions.

  4. HOW can you develop the replacement employees' most critical skills?

    Use the Individual Development Planner (IDP) tool to identify each employee's most critical skill gaps relative to the requirements of their jobs, then create skill development plans for each employee.
