Unsuccessful Successors

Posted on Monday, July 15th, 2013 by

Internal or external? That is the question. And in order to avoid a Hamlet-like tragedy when it comes to succession, the decision needs to be managed wisely. If a vacancy presents itself, organisations may have the option of both internal candidates and external candidates – and sometimes the latter may be the preferred choice. While internal employees that have unsuccessfully applied for a role are unlikely to pour poison in the ear of their external rival, the process of denying an internal candidate is a delicate one that can result in a lack of engagement or a loss of talent within the organisation. http://www2.askgrapevine.com/markets/hr/article/2013-07-09-unsuccessful-successors?utm_source=Sign-Up.to&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=7962-298523-Digital+Mag+-+09%2F07%2F2013
