For Executives

Human resources planning is central to a healthy organization that attracts and retains competent, committed and engaged employees. A sound human resources plan can help you secure the right people, build a supportive work environment and develop the capacity to ensure your organization's success.

Good human resources planning includes succession planning and management, which is a systematic approach to identifying, developing and retaining talent for key positions and functions in line with current and projected business objectives.

This guide will help you develop a rigorous human resources plan that is aligned with your organization's business objectives.
