Managers and HRBPs with the proper authority can add people to their succession slates and pools even if those people are outside their hierarchy, or assigned in positions/orgs (for whom they are stakeholders with AoR=Succession HR) in order to complete their plans using cross-operational successors. Assign the authority, Can Add Outside Employees to Succession Plan, to roles, allows for the functionality.
Managers and HR business partners were not permitted to add employees outside of their span of control to succession slates and pools. This practice required someone with broader access to facilitate cross-operational planning. But for organizations that want to break-down boundaries and allow people from across the organization to add directly to their succession plans, they found the facilitated practice limiting.
Once this authority Can Add Outside Employees to Succession Plan is assigned to roles is added, then:
- Managers and HRBPs with the proper authority can add people to their succession slates and pools even if those people are outside their hierarchy or assigned positions/orgs (for whom they stakeholders with AoR=Succession HR) in order to complete their plans using cross-organizational successors.
- Managers and HRBPs cannot see confidential data about successors and pool members who are outside their hierarchy or assigned stakeholder area of responsibility in order to protect those individual's privacy and enforce the company's secure data access standards.
