Succession Planning Report Now Online


Research & Planning (R&P) recently conducted a Succession Planning Survey of workers in the Wyoming Department of Employment. This study had two purposes: to gather information regarding workersí retirement intentions and factors that affect employee retention, and to serve as a model for future succession planning research for other agencies, companies, and organizations. The study assessed worker demographics, employee satisfaction, occupations of concern due to exits and retirement, and the importance of factors such as benefits, opportunities for advancement, wages, and training in influencing worker retention.

The complete 88-page report, including methodology and the survey instrument, is available online in pdf format at R&Pís Labor Market Information website at http://doe.state.wy.us/LMI/SP_Report.pdf.
