Succession Planning with Dr. Jeanne Alongi

In this episode we have a wide-ranging conversation about Succession Planning. Did you know that 38% of the public health workers indicated they intend to leave their job in the next five years? Learn about this and other key findings from a broad, sweeping survey of the public health national workforce. Hear about some underexplored issues related to workforce diversity and competency needs. Discover a useful mental model for succession planning as Jeanne walks us through a succession planning road map.

And as promised, we dig into some day-to-day tools and techniques such as individualized development plans, stretch assignments, desk references and competency assessments. (Good practical advice!)

Workforce change and turnover is a reality, if we don’t think about succession planning systematically and intentionally apply our learnings our field risks stagnating.
