Abstract

This paper examines why some Ontario municipalities choose not to engage in succession planning, which ensures continuous staffing by identifying how positions will be filled. A survey of members of the Ontario Municipal Human Resources Association was conducted. The findings reveal that most Ontario municipalities are not engaging in succession planning because other immediate organizational challenges take priority.
