When a key employee hands in their resignation, it may be met with shock at the organization. However, there are several important things that you will need to do to smooth the transition. If your company has a succession plan to deal with this scenario then the next steps will be clear. Yet, if there is no succession plan to replace the employee who will be leaving you may feel a sense of panic, but it doesn’t have to be chaos.

High Potential Employees
One of the hot topics when it comes to employee retention is the value of High Potential Employees and what companies are doing to utilize this resource, while continuing to support their goals. Studies show that 79 percent of people in the U.S. alone cite “lack of appreciation” as one of the main reasons for leaving a job. It is the employees with high potential (or HiPos) that make up most of this bracket. They have worked hard and made their goals clear but feel like they are not getting anywhere.

Quickly training a new manager
Training a new manager can be a challenge. This can be especially true if time is of the essence. Ensuring that employees are ready to take on leadership roles within the organization is vital for productivity and growth. Companies that don’t offer some type of manager training could end up with some very serious problems.

Buying into a Mentoring Program
Within any company, the bottom line is always the top priority. There can be so much focus on turning profits that the analysis on how to get there can be blindsided by initiatives that seem to work in the short-term. Just because something works financially, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it works developmentally. There are always other avenues to explore.
