HR Succession: When the Cobbler’s Children Have No Shoes
Date: June 26, 2013
Time: 2:30 p.m. ET
According to a study by Cornell University, only 36 percent of chief human resource officers in the United States obtained their position through promotion from within, while 54 percent were hired from outside the organization. Meanwhile, the same study finds that 65 percent of CEOs and 54 percent of CFOs were promoted from within.
If you don’t find this discrepancy disturbing, you should. Not only do these findings suggest that strong internal candidates for the top HR role are being overlooked, but that the HR department -- which is typically responsible for ensuring succession planning is taking place throughout the organization -- is failing to perform this vital function for itself.
When HR leaders take the time to develop an HR succession plan, it can not only save companies the time and expense -- not to mention minimize the potential risks -- associated with finding outside candidates who can step into these roles, but it also elevates the overall talent and capability of your top HR team.
In their presentation, Patti Johnson and Michael Peel will draw upon their own extensive experience as HR leaders and through advising clients on what often gets in the way of HR executives being promoted from within, what HR leaders can and should be doing to groom their potential successors, and the keys to success in this vital endeavor.
This webinar is intended not only for HR leaders, but also for high-potential HR talent who hope to one day assume the top HR spot at their organizations.
