    Enhance Employee Retention w/ Operational Succession Planning (OSP) - cATalyzing Short

    Enhance Employee Retention w/ Operational Succession Planning (OSP) - cATalyzing Short

    "Enhance Employee Retention with Operational Succession Planning (OSP)" - cATalyzing Short with Ryan Stevens


    Employee turnover is a pressing challenge for healthcare providers, especially with an aging US population and retiring experienced professionals. To tackle this, operational succession planning (OSP) emerges as a potential solution to identify and develop future leaders. A 2022 national study by Jennifer Hefner et al confirmed a significant link between OSP and reduced employee turnover, making it an effective mechanism for enhancing employee retention in US medical practices.

    In this cATalyzing Short I discuss 3🔥OSP implementation strategies for your team:




    Identify Key Roles and Skills: Identify critical roles and required skills for smooth operations. Address skill gaps during succession planning.
    Develop a Talent Pipeline: Nurture potential successors with growth opportunities, mentorship, and cross-training to prepare them for leadership roles.
    Document Processes and Knowledge: Create a knowledge repository with critical processes and best practices to facilitate seamless transitions.


    By adopting these strategies, organizations can proactively address employee turnover and retain talented professionals, ensuring long-term success and sustainability.

    ...and if you're looking for a spark to guide you toward enhancing retention in your organization, let's talk! Ignite your potential, and fuel your fire within!
