Practical Strategies for Comprehensive Succession Planning and Knowledge Management
Abstract:Over the past six years, Union Sanitary District (USD) has implemented a comprehensive Succession Planning and Long-Term Staffing Program for non-management staff through a joint labor-management problem-solving process. USD's approach differs from conventional models in that the District partnered with the employees' union and also focused on the replacement of key, non-management individuals such as electricians, engineering technicians, operators, mechanics, and administrative staff. These joint efforts have resulted in more than a dozen major initiatives that are assisting the District to attract and retain well-qualified new staff members as well as to capture valuable institutional and technical knowledge.
