Organisational Career & Succession Planning

The importance of organisational strategic career path & executive succession planning 

Nothing bites into the bottom line of business moreso than the consequences of dissatisfied employees, high turnover and the significant resultant rehiring costs.

Organisations can gain many benefits from developing both career path plans and succession strategies including;

  • Developing internal talent
  • Reducing flight risk

While there are numerous programs and platforms available to organisations in relation to the development of these important HR strategies, there are two very specific tools that when combined provide a powerful result, the Strong Interest Inventory® careers instrument and the Myers-Briggs Personality Profile Careers Report®.

The Strong Interest Inventory®

The Strong Interest Inventory® is one of the most respected and widely used career planning instruments globally. It is a valuable exercise for the following situations;

  • Talent management & optimisation
  • Organisational restructuring
  • Succession planning
  • Career transitioning
  • Career path planning
  • Employee performance management

It has assisted organisations and their people globally in understanding more about themselves, their job interests and preferences and how they interact with others.

The Strong assessment and the recently updated Occupational Scales are the result of nearly a century of comparing the interests of people with those of workers in various occupations.

The initial work of Professor E.K. Strong, Stanford University in researching similarities between people’s interests and those of satisfied workers combined with John Holland’s theory of personality types and work environments culminates in a powerful method of assisting people with career options.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® Career Report

The MBTI® is one of the most widely used and empirically researched and validated personality instruments in the world.  Many people find it useful as a way of understanding themselves, as well as their commonalities and differences with others.

Find the best occupational match for your employees with this easy-to-read graphic report. The MBTI® Form M Career Report shows how their type affects their career exploration and discusses the benefits of choosing a job that is good for their type.

The 10 page report also explores preferred work tasks and work environments as well as the most popular and least popular occupations for their type and offers strategies for improving job satisfaction.

This completely updated report includes expanded coverage of popular fields such as business, health care, computer technology and high-level executive and management occupations.

The Strong Profile and Strong & MBTI® Career Report

Combining the two assessments empowers the provisions of a complete career development picture based on a combined interpretation of your employees interests and personality.

It integrates your employee’s General Occupational Themes, Basic Interest Scales, Occupational Scales and Personal Style Scales from the Strong Interest Inventory® instrument with their MBTI® results to offer career direction with an emphasis on roles suggested by both instruments.

The 23 page report leverages the latest research on both instruments and combines the results of more than 68,000 individuals who have taken the Strong assessment with the results for more than 92,000 individuals who have completed the MBTI® assessment.

The highly intuitive report includes 4 pages of individualised, interactive content for all employees looking for career enrichment or seeking work-life-balance. At the same time it assists organisations in their development of career and succession planning through the application of rich data informed through empirically tested instruments.
