00621 HRTalks – Succession Planning Excellence
Friday, June 22, 2018
8:45AM - 11:45AM 
Continuing Education 1 (Bldg 8) 2070-9

For HR and Learning and Development professionals: The impact of executive talent on a firm’s strategic direction and performance can be fatal when organizations fail to develop internal capabilities. Despite global CEO turnover reaching a 15-year high in 2015, only 54% of boards are actively developing CEO successors while 39% report having no single internal candidate who could replace the CEO, if necessary. The costs of neglecting to prepare for transitions in executive roles are incredibly high, with estimates as high as $112 billion in market value for public companies. Join us for a FREE keynote session to learn how you can cultivate a strong succession plan for your organization. This presentation is followed by a Q&A panel with industry experts sharing best practices on creating and implementing an internal L&D strategy. Please note: This event may be recorded. By registering, you acknowledge and give UCI permission to use the footage for marketing purposes.
