Succession Planning: Building Your Bench Before the Trade Deadline


David Lutes is a Succession Planning, Organizational Development, Talent Management and Training Director with 25+ years’ of international experience at a strategic and middle management operational level. He also has senior director experience in several multinational and global Fortune 100 companies.


Effective succession planning has a lot in common with successful coaching. Like in sports, managers invest heavily in their MVPs, which ensures they know they’re valued, are actively engaged, and feeling well rewarded. But what about the bench? If your company isn’t actively engaging its second string, succession planning efforts will fall flat.

Approximately 70% of all good second team/bench players who have been with the team more than four years are actively in “new team hunt mode” at any given time. Your competitors know this – and they know what you may be doing (or not doing) to possibly lose them. This webinar will provide compelling pro-active and reactive reasons why you should build and strengthen your bench with 3, 4 and 5-Tool Players.

If your team member is any good at all, s/he is on someone’s radar. More potentially damaging to you, your potential future Starters likely are trying to get on another team’s radar – weighing their worth; clarifying what they are looking for in a new team, a new coach, and a new manager; and figuring out what their longer-term prospects look like. In this webinar, you’ll learn the key reasons why they are searching or at least open to being traded, sold, or poached – and how to stop it.

David will inject his approach to assessing your bench in ways that give you practical, relevant, and critical data to build for the future. We’ll help you look beyond competencies, performance, and potential, and expose you to the illusive but extraordinarily important 6th Tool of Motivation and Drive. Finally, you’ll learn how to assess it and act upon it, ensuring a strong – and loyal – second string.

Nationalization: Video Interviewing as a Solution to Recruitment Challenges

In preparation for our upcoming webinar on Tuesday 14th July at 14:00 GST ‘Nationalization – Video Interviewing is the Solution’, we’ve been looking deeper into Nationalization within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and uncovering some of the recruitment challenges this initiative brings to recruiters.

The GCC countries, (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and the Sultanate of Oman) have a unique problem. Despite all the growth, oil exports, and economic boom, native unemployement remains at extrodinarily high levels with the vast majority of employment within the region being enjoyed by expatriates. In an attempt to combat this growing imbalance, the GCC nations have implemented various nationalization schemes to varying success.

What is Nationalization?

Nationalization at a basic level is the integration of nationals into the local labour market. The GCC countries have taken various approaches to the scheme, either by offering incentives for the jobless, increasing jobs in the public sector or, most relevant to recruiters, legislating private companies to hire more local staff. The Nationalization programs throughout the GCC have been in place for more than a decade, but the private sector is still lagging behind with citizens only representing 0.34% of the private sector workforce

What does it mean for recruiters?

It means a lot to recruiters! In a recent MENA Labour Market Confidence Index, conducted by The Talent Enterprise, Nationalization was voted as one of the top 3 priorities by more than 1,250 organisational HR leaders. The Nationalization programme can present recruitment challenges such as a limited workforceskills shortages and competition with the public sector. Organisations within the GCC no longer have just a ‘moral’ obligation to integrate local works, in many areas this is becoming a legal requirement. Never before has it been so important to have a uniform and transparent recruitment process regardless of where your employees are coming from. That’s where Video Interviewing can help.

How can Video Interviewing act as a Solution to these Recruitment Challenges?

When you’re dealing with limited workforce, no other recruitment tool allows you to cast your net as wide as Video Interviewing. Whether you are hiring for local staff or expatriate workers, this technology removes all geographical boundaries and more importantly, puts no financial pressure on you or your candidates in travelling to large-scale first round screening. Video Interviewing is the single best way to get the most comprehensive look at your candidates during the early stages. Whether for lower entry-level roles or senior hires, the software allows every candidate showcase themselves in a way that is just not possible with other screening methods. Best of all, it is fully uniform and transparent. Every candidate is given equal opportunity and completes their interviews under the exact same conditions.

The employment landscape continues to shift in the area but with continued legal pressure to ensure the success of Nationalization, organisations that hope to continue to enjoy the economic benefits of the region, have no choice but implement real change in order to comply.
