Our primary mission at Reaction Search International Houston is to effectively recruit the top professionals in over thirty-five different vertical markets. We always strive to find the best possible match for your organization’s top-level leadership positions. RSI’s Houston Succession Management Team does high-level evaluation, assessment and matching processes to ensure that only the very most qualified of applicants find their way into our clients’ companies. We will stop at nothing short of the best candidate profile to meet your needs and mission. However, sometimes with a little effort and planning, the very best person for the job can be found within your organization already.
Succession management planning is a long term process which allows companies to develop and grow their talent from within. When appropriately executed this planning process should ensure you never have to gamble on an external hire for any high-level positions ever again. While it is inevitable that a replacement will eventually be necessary for when employees in a leadership position inevitably retire or move on from your organization, the role can quickly be filled by an internal candidate with a higher chance of success in the job.
Nevertheless, this process still requires a great deal of preparation and planning to be effective. Merely placing an employee with the longest tenure into a leadership role will not guarantee success and could be a recipe for disaster on multiple levels. Proper succession management planning requires diligence, forethought and time to be effectual; this means putting the procedure into practice at least a year or preferably more in advance of the promotion.
While this may come across as a daunting and time-consuming process, nevertheless at the end of the day, the reward will far outweigh the effort. Research has found that only about half of all boards maintain a process of preparing a successor for CEO roles who could take over the position on short notice. Furthermore, there is a minimal likelihood of an underperforming CEO to be forced out of their characters, even when they are detrimental to the company’s bottom line if there has not been a replacement identified.
The Succession Management Specialty Team provides services for clients in the Accounting, Advertising, Aerospace and Defense, Automotive, Banking, Biotechnology, Construction, Consumer Products, Computer Software & Hardware, Education, Energy and Utilities, Finance, Government, Human Resources, Healthcare, Insurance, IT, Industrial, Legal, Marketing, Manufacturing, Medical, Non Profit, Pharmaceutical, Sales, Technology, Telecommunications and Transportation industries.
