Succession Planning

October 14, 2011

The high cost of executive recruiting, the cost of opportunity and loss due to high potential turnover, and the cost of a failed executive placement (estimated to be between 2 to 5 times the executive’s annual salary) all point to the importance of effective succession planning for retention and cost savings.  Sager specializes in working with you to help develop the strategic steps needed to plan your company’s future in the most cost effective way.

Whether it is preparing someone to take over as the sole proprietor of a small business or a position of leadership in a corporation, business succession planning is essential to the long-term survival of a company.  The process used with Sager also serves as a proactive internal recruiting tool for your organization.  This is accomplished by not only predicting new leadership position needs and future leadership vacancy risks, but also by proactively identifying and developing successors with high potential for leadership advancement.
