What have you done lately to ensure that your employees are not jumping to every phone call from a recruiter? Don’t kid yourself about what your team members are looking for from their current company. No differently than you, they are looking for a plan! Not only is succession planning essential for possible candidates, but it is essential that it is reinforced and, more importantly, practiced in your very own departmenttoday. “If you build it, they will come is not” applies not only to perspective talent, but your current team as well. To that point, if you build their careers based on their accomplishments and professional goals, they will not only come to your department, but stay with the company.
