Succession Planning

Succession planning is a process for identifying and developing talent to transition into positions when a new position is created or the current occupant leaves. It involves proactive planning for mobility within the organization by crafting career paths for all levels.

Why It’s Important

Succession plans are not only important for when someone quits an organization, but are also critical when someone goes on an extended vacation, becomes ill, or takes on more responsibility. Cross training, hiring from the inside, and talent mapping can build your confidence and fortify the organizational culture, enabling you to achieve your biggest goals.

How We Do It

Hiring By Design’s approach involves partnering with people like you to create a proactive plan.

First, we will gain a deep understanding of the role. Then, we transform the subjective into objective when measuring the natural talents and skills of the person currently in the role (if there is one), ultimately creating a position-based success formula.

Using this formula, we create a database of talent for the purposes of identifying internal successors or career paths for those whose skills and natural talents match the position. All of this creates a holistic, specific, and measurable plan that enables you to confidently move into the future.

Success Stories

We win when our clients do. See what our clients said about Hiring By Design.

Since 2015 IEHP has been partnering with Tricia Neves of Hiring By Design to assess our executive level candidates. Her assessment techniques and service focused approach has given us the tools to make the best selections possible for critical positions in the company. The interpretation of the data and insight that is given provides each leader with a roadmap to enhance their leadership skills in the ever changing world of health care.
