A StrategyDriven Advisor supported a Fortune 200 utility’s internal audit team assess the succession and workforce planning of key nuclear plant management and employee positions.
Our advisor worked with senior plant leaders to identify management and workforce staffing and experience shortfalls, including the underlying drivers, for positions within the online work management and outage planning organizations. Senior utility manager briefings were conducted on the fundamentals of succession and workforce planning programs and potential near-term solutions to fill existing vacancies.
Our client received foundational insights on how to establish a robust management succession and workforce planning program, including key program elements and execution effectiveness measurement. Recommendations to close positional and programmatic gaps were provided to temporarily alleviate the plant’s near-term staffing shortfalls.
