Succession planning

Succession planning involves an integrated, systematic approach to identify, develop and retain talent for key positions and areas in line with current and future organizational plans.

Succession planning will ensure Memorial University develops and retains employees necessary to accomplish the goals identified in the institution’s strategic plan.

The succession plan will provide ease of transition in filling anticipated organizational human resource needs. Succession planning is a transparent, inclusive process.

The current succession planning initiative began in October 2008. The project involves St. John's Campus, the Marine Institute, and Sir Wilfred Grenfell College.

Departments will have a number of roles in succession planning including identifying key and critical positions, nominating employees as potential successors, and being aware of their human resource needs as related to the departmental goals.
