Why Anaplan for Succession Planning?

Prioritize people positions and collaborate on retention plans to streamline and accelerate the decision-making process. With workforce analytics, reveal the metrics and trends that matter most when assessing your workforce talent: skills and performance ratings, capacity for growth, and retention risk.
Inform your bottom-up planning process with weighed options for your "buy, build, or borrow" workforce decisions, aligned to one or more business initiatives.
With Anaplan, easily model in “what-if” changes in salary, talent, and skills criteria, and see changes ripple through to impact your best-fit options among current employees and as compared to your external hire assumptions.
