Talent Management and Succession Planning

Developing and maintaining skills, especially talent capital, is more vital than ever for companies.

Economic uncertainty, market volatility, increased elasticity of demand, global competition, acceleration of phenomena, and shorter product lives require greater agility from the organization, which is obliged to adapt very quickly to new processes, new organizations, and new technologies.

In addition to these changes in the external environment, there is an increased demand for employees, particularly for talents that must be attracted, motivated, retained, and developed in line with the company’s interests regardless of its size, the company needs to put in place simple and flexible skills and performance management systems.
