What happens when a key member of your staff retires or quits? How do you ensure that person’s role is successfully filled?
Succession planning is a key component of managing a waste facility. It’s important to plan ahead so that you are ready when the time comes. When it comes to succession planning, you should be asking questions like:
- Will you hire externally or promote from within?
- What training protocols and procedures do you have?
- How do you ensure you are up-to-speed with all of the intricacies of each position at your facility?
In addition to cross-training and documenting job descriptions, Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) can help clarify the job duties of key personnel at your facility and make staffing changes a smoother process. Check out the following video to learn more.
