This book is a guide designed for rehabilitation agencies to plan for staff retirements and other turnover. It examines the process of succession planning, necessary tools, resources, and positioning the organization for future success. Chapters have the following titles: (1) "Succession Planning in a Dynamic Environment"; (2) "Succession Planning in Vocational Rehabilitation"; (3) "Organizational and Strategic Planning for Human Resources"; (4) "Developing a Human Resources Strategic Plan"; (5) "Building Organizational Capacities through Current and Future Staff"; (6) "Building the Capacity of Individuals: Having the Right Person in the Right Place at the Right Time"; and (7) "Effective Practices: They ARE Doing It!" The final chapter offers a summary and eight recommendations. These include: survey employees to gain a better understanding of organizational climate; develop an organizational succession plan that connects with the organization's mission, values, and overall strategic plan; and work jointly with educators to address current and long-term needs. Appendices provide lists of resources, a comparison of wage estimates by occupational title, and sample employee development plans. (Contains 93 references.) (DB)
