HumanConcepts Announces OrgPlus Enterprise Succession Module

Exeter, United Kingdom – HumanConcepts announced OrgPlus® Enterprise Succession at the Oracle HCM Users Group conference today in Las Vegas. This solution enables organisations to create and share succession plans in a matter of days — not months or years. OrgPlus Enterprise Succession enables HR managers to rapidly deliver succession plans without the resources and lead time usually required.

OrgPlus Enterprise Succession provides a practical, intuitive framework for succession plans that can be rolled out quickly within any enterprise. The solution eliminates the false steps, intense staff work and redundant subjective appraisal processes. With OrgPlus Enterprise Succession, teams can create succession plans that optimise the workforce structure and align the right candidates with the right positions – in a fraction of the time required for traditional solutions.

OrgPlus Enterprise Succession provides visual, drag-and-drop functionality that allows managers to easily view succession plans within organisational charts and test “what-if” scenarios by moving candidates into and out of succession plans. Solution features include:

  • Web 2.0 technology allows collaboration with team members while creating and modifying succession plans
  • Built in staging area provides a convenient way of managing a list of potential candidates
  • Visual identifiers such as symbols, colours or box formats can be used to identify candidates that meet specific criteria
  • Built in “9 box” performance/potential grid speeds evaluation of successors
  • ”Next Moves” illustrates career plans for any employee

“With the rapid pace of change today, HR needs to be ready to name successors to key positions. However, developing succession plans can be a long and inflexible process. With OrgPlus Enterprise Succession, managers can now quickly develop these plans and identify candidates without additional time and resource costs,” said Martin Sacks, CEO, HumanConcepts.

OrgPlus Enterprise Succession can be integrated directly into HR systems including Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft and SAP. When integrated, security roles are passed to OrgPlus ensuring appropriate access to employee data and succession plans.
