Most organisations struggle with succession planning. Building the bench strength of the leaders within your own organisation is hard when most people are thinking it’s probably easier to be promoted outside of the organisation. If someone is considering a career path change or they are looking for a promotion, why not make that possible within the organisation?
Tools such as HRIS, LXP, Talent Management and other systems are all attempting to make internal mobility and career succession more effective by mapping pathways and providing content for building capacity towards that succession. However, at the core of what is truly needed for building value for the employee is the human connections that have them feel a sense of belonging and help them visualise themselves in a role elsewhere in your organisation (upward or sideways).
The most affected cohort of people at the whim of this conundrum is mid-level management. Often development opportunities are available to new entrants/graduates and to leadership, but there is a lack of career development opportunities or promotions available for mid-level managers to see themselves long term at the organisation.
In this webcast we will discuss the roles that mentoring plays in the workplace to enable succession and internal mobility. How implementing a program can boost engagement of employees or help to manage change. From cross-silo communication to internal mobility, knowledge transfer to building leadership capacity, these are all topics we’ll cover as outcomes from a well-run mentoring program.
In this webcast Gina will explore:
- Why mentoring for internal mobility and succession is important right now
- Examples of mentoring programs that achieve these objective
- The critical elements in delivering successful mentoring programs to boost employee engagement and manage change
- The barriers of establishing a mentoring program and how to overcome them.
- Understanding ROI in mentoring and how this aligns with organisational objectives
