Interact HRMS Succession Planning tracks and marks those critical jobs/positions which require succession due to retirement, termination, or other termination actions, and devises effective action for identifying internal employees or external applicants who can be prepared for succession. For internal employees, career plans can be setup to prepare the employees for assignment to the positions/jobs that are upcoming for succession.  Succession Planning allows the user to shortlist any number of potential successors for a position/job and is driven by a workflow which starts with a Succession Request issued by a manager, employee or HR user.  Once the Succession Request is approved, a Succession Plan is created which then leads to next steps for the shortlisted potential successors, including  further competency evaluation, career planning, performance appraisal, and training and development.
