The state of succession management 2019

Create effective programs to develop leadership for the future


Succession management is one of the trickiest tasks in human resources. HR can’t always be sure about who will be available for promotion or whether the key jobs of today will still be key in the future.

Nevertheless, succession management is essential because it reduces the risk of disruptive talent gaps in critical roles in the years ahead.

To understand the state of succession management practices, conducted this study, sponsored by Ceridian, with three primary goals in mind:

  • Determine the degree to which organizations are doing formal or informal succession planning
  • Learn how they are managing their processes
  • Gain insight into what practices lead to the most effective outcomes
