Does your organization already have an idea of the upcoming outflow of talent in crucial key positions? And is there already a plan in place for the right successors? These are important questions that concern HR managers.
The Central Bureau of Statistics Netherlands expects that the working population will fall from 60% to 55% between 2010 and 2040. This decrease is somewhat halted by raising the retirement age to 67 years. The first group of baby boomers (born in 1946) will retire around 2011. In 2040 there will be one pensioner for every two workers. So as of 2011 we can reasonably predict the outflow of workers from the labor force.
A good example of what you see in family businesses is that the average term of office for a director is 22 years. Which gives this organization a reasonable amount of time to prepare the successors.
In non-family businesses and larger organizations this average is considerably lower namely around seven years. The average age of board members in Dutch organizations is 62 years old.
A departure of long-serving employee in a key position who is of age can still be reasonably well predicted. However it could happen that you might be confronted with a suddenly exiting key or management employee. And you have an urgent and unexpected open vacancy.
For these emergencies, Get Headhunted Group has an additional facility to place a qualified candidate on a temporary basis for a short period of time to ensure continuation.
You now have the time to look for a good permanent employee to replace the interim candidate and further ensure the continuity of your organization.
