Internal communication plans can educate employees, relieve stress, and inspire open conversations about an organization’s future. Most importantly, communication plans can help to identify and overcome common succession barriers. Although an effective communication plan is only a small piece of the overall succession puzzle, it is the first proactive step toward laying the foundation for stakeholder collaboration and the alignment of a cohesive, systematic process. If done correctly, communication plans can increase organizational buy-in, reduce resistance, and strengthen succession planning initiatives.
In this week’s Assignment, continue to examine barriers to succession planning by applying your analysis to the organization (Hewlett Packard Enterprise) for your Course Project. In addition, use Chapter 6, “Starting a Systematic Program,” of the course text Effective Succession Planning to formulate a company-wide plan to change the culture of an organization.
To successfully complete this Assignment, review Chapter 5, “Making the Case for Major Change” of the course text Effective Succession Planning to determine the strategies human resources (HR) can use to change the succession planning culture of an organization. Finally, synthesize the information from these resources, as well as from the other articles provided in the Learning Resources, and apply them to the scenario below.
Assume that you are the HR manager for Hewlett Packard -Enterprise that you chose for your Course Project. After the recent earthquakes and tsunamis that have impacted industries around the world, the scholarly conversations on the benefits of succession planning have reached an all-time high. In fact, because of this, your organization has asked you to develop such a plan to safeguard the company’s knowledge and hierarchy of internal workings. The board of directors would like you to set this plan in motion before any changeovers occur due to necessity or as a result of an unforeseen disaster. You are excited about this change in culture, as you have long been a proponent of establishing a succession plan for your organization. You are worried, however, as you know many executives might see this plan in an unfavorable light.
As you leave your meeting with the board of directors, you have your first and arguably most difficult step ahead of you. You are to come up with a communication plan that will help both the executives and mid-level employees become comfortable with the idea of succession planning. Your communication plan must educate the organization on mentoring options, as well as possible growth opportunities. You must also explicitly state that HR will use both internal and external recruiting methods to find potential successors to fill the company’s future positions. Finally, the last emphasis of your communication plan must include a positive message, ensuring all employees of the benefits that succession planning can bring, as well as encouraging them to “get involved.”
