A new report released today by the Workforce Development Board/Local Employment Planning Council (WDB/LEPC) “Addressing Succession Planning Needs of Local Employers” researches and identifies succession planning needs of local employers.

The goal of this research report is to learn more about the experiences of local employers at the development and implementation stage of succession planning and to provide employers with information about succession planning resources. This report will inform future work in the region, providing insights on how best to develop locally focused succession planning tools to fit the needs of employer communities.
