HR Director Dinner: Inclusive succession planning


Time: to


Succession planning is about determining who will lead your organisation into the future. It is about identifying which key positions are at risk and vital to your organisation’s smooth operation and then developing pools of talent that are ready to be drawn from at any time for any reason.  Simply put, succession planning is your current and‘emergency replacement’ talent pool.  It can also be a key tool to drive engagement within your organisation.

The 2015 Race at Work survey provided us with a greater understanding of the issues around the under-representation of ethnic minorities in the workplace and at senior levels.  Interest in taking part in a fast track programme is significantly higher amongst Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups, jumping from 18% of white employees who would take part to 40% of BAME employees. However, this is not reflected by greater access to fast track management programmes or inclusion in succession planning for ethnic minority groups. The leadership pipeline of today needs to be populated with sufficient BAME talent to ensure that senior management of the future and workplaces reflect an increasingly diverse working-age population.
