Personnel Management 'Unjust rewards'
Planning for Succession in Changing Times
28 November at the University of Brighton
Dr Wendy Hirsh presents the findings of a study conducted in 2012 for a large employer consortium - the Corporate Research Forum. The research used both a survey and in-depth interviews to examine the relationship between succession planning and talent management, the jobs and people that organisations are trying to plan for, trends seen in the processes used for succession planning, how plans influence the way posts are filled and individuals developed and how could succession planning work better.
The findings of the study will be presented and illustrated with current examples. Debate will be strongly encouraged!
