Succession Planning

Succession Planning

Succession planning, what is it?

It is a documented strategic approach for management succession at all levels of the organization to ensure that the right talent and skills will be available when needed. This is necessary so that essential knowledge and abilities will be maintained when employees in critical positions leave. It creates a road map for the future talent of the Bank of Maldives (BML) and defines how managers will go about developing that talent.

Attract, develop & retain
motivated and talented individuals

Desired Results

The desired results of the succession planning policy are to:

  • Identify high-potential employees capable of rapid advancement to positions of higher responsibility than those they presently occupy.
  • Ensure the systematic and long-term development of individuals to replace key job incumbents as the need arises due to resignations, termination of contracts, retirements, and any unexpected losses.
  • Provide a continuous flow of talented people to meet the organization’s needs.
  • Increase the chances of the organisation delivering the desired sustained business results


Succession planning is a win/win for both the organisation and its employees. The overall wellbeing of the organisation will be better maintained with a well-planned, well-executed succession plan in place. Employee turnover, costs of replacing staff with external candidates, customer satisfaction and quality outcomes all stand to improve as succession planning is further integrated into the business. Less measurable will be the increased employee morale and organisational loyalty, teamwork, and shared vision which will have a tremendous impact on the organisation’s overall health and momentum.
