CEB Corporate Leadership Council™ Executive Briefing Series
The End of Agility?: Designing a HIPO Strategy That Moves at the Speed of
the Business

This event is reserved for those with an existing CEB Corporate Leadership Council™ membership.

As organizations become flatter, and as the profile of the high performer evolves rapidly, organizations need to adopt a more flexible approach that builds future stars who will outperform in a wide variety of roles and contexts.

At the same time, retaining HIPOs is a critical challenge. Less than 50% fully intend to stay with their organizations past the next 12 months. To add to the challenge, HR leaders must also create compelling value propositions for a new generation of rising leaders. How can organizations develop HIPO strategies that are agile enough to address the rapidly changing needs of both the organization and its most promising employees?

Creating a Culture that Performs: Moving from People to Processes to Maximize Culture Outcomes

This event is reserved for those with an existing CEB Corporate Leadership Council™ membership.

Join us to hear and discuss with your peers the latest CEB now Gartner research on creating a culture that performs and how achieving higher alignment between the workforce and your desired culture drives improvements in key business outcomes.

Despite all the attention and resources devoted to managing organizational culture, less than a third of HR leaders believe that their organization has the culture it needs to drive future business performance. The best organizations are addressing these knowledge, mindset and behavior gaps holistically by moving from people to process-focused strategies in order to get a higher level of alignment between the workforce and the desired culture.

You Asked

How should organizations identify and prepare future leaders when leadership requirements for those roles are changing quickly and in unpredictable ways?

Our Research Says

As leadership requirements evolve faster and in more unpredictable ways, organizations are being on agiliy to improve the impact of their HIPO strategies. However, efforts to increase the supply of agile people are not paying off. Leading organizations are creating more agile HIPO strategies that can move at the pace of the business to align ability, aspiration, and engagement with evolving needs.

What This Means for You

  • Expand ownership of needs identification and assesment beyond HR.
  • Actively manage HIPOs' aspirations over time.
  • Take ownership of HIPOs' career progression to ensure efficient access to opporunities beyond promotions.
