The Succession Plan, So You Can Retire

There is this belief that as the population hits retirement age and employees start to leave the workforce that someone will step up and be able to do the job in the same way you did for the company or agency where you are employed.

The Great Resignation as it has been called in numerous op-eds and news stories is one of the many challenges that can be attributed to the last two and a half years. It is the quiet retirement or mass exodus of much of the institutional knowledge that companies, and organizations have had on staff for many years.

What happens when that institutional knowledge is no longer available? It can throw a company or organization into a crisis.

Planning for your retirement is one thing… but you also need to plan for your successor. Who will take your place and who can you mentor to become the person the company can trust to carry on your legacy? 

Serious thought and planning should go into those decisions. Your knowledge and skills are not something you can leave behind in a folder or on a computer. You must take responsibility for identifying someone you can trust with your job when you leave.

Take time to look around at who can step into your shoes when you get ready to get on the Retirement Bus…become a mentor and begin to train the next generation.
