Companies continue to scramble for talent at every level, from senior executives to part-time hourly workers. This wealth of open positions in the workforce underscores the importance of succession planning, which is an essential way for companies to ensure continuity and avoid disruption in critical business functions.

Succession planning continues to be a strategic imperative for organizations: In the past two years, nearly 70 percent of organizations have increased their succession planning efforts. In addition, the number of organizations with a succession planning process has increased by 15 percentage points since 2018.

During this webinar, we’ll discuss results from a new ATD Research report, Succession Planning: Preparing Organizations for the Future. This report draws on a sample of 243 organizations to investigate key questions around succession planning, provide benchmarking data, and highlight best practices. We also will review four keys to success for your organization’s succession planning efforts.
