Date created
With the retirement of the baby boomer generation, the Ministry of Children and Family Development will suffer a significant loss of experience and knowledge. The Ministry is ill prepared to compete for talent and hard pressed to retain existing talent. The shortfall of qualified Social Workers crucial to the delivery of their mandate requires a concerted effort to build a new approach to recruiting, cultivating, and retaining talent. As an organization evolves, it needs to be able to determine the qualifications and characteristics of its future leaders and staff to ensure continuity of leadership and avoid transition problems. The set of recommendations provided in this report will allow the Ministry to successfully implement succession management planning and to fulfil its mandate into the future. Without the implementation of a succession management plan the Ministry will not be able to address the looming staff shortage.
