Advisory Services

How an organization is perceived by various stakeholders including potential stakeholders is of prime importance. Succession planning, perception surveys, and talent mapping are few services we offer to enable our clients to effectively handle human resources planning and management.

I. Succession planning

As organizations proceed through the various stages of their growth lifecycle and formulate strategies to meet new business challenges that emerge with it, the issue of leadership and the associated paradigm of succession planning attain critical dimensions for the eventual success of the firm.

Most leading global organizations have developed their own strategies for succession planning and one can increasingly witness Indian conglomerates adopting structured succession plans as opposed to the ad-hoc approach which was prevalent earlier. Even large family run Indian businesses have understood the necessity of hiring non-family managers and many of them have already went ahead and defined their succession plans.

We at Longhouse work with our clients to develop a clear road map for succession keeping in mind the exigencies of the business as well as the core strengths of the firm. Our team consists of senior individuals from industry who have an in-depth understanding of the challenges that organizations are likely to face in implementing a succession planning strategy and in order to address these challenges we believe in adopting a holistic approach engaging all the relevant stakeholders of the firm.

II. Talent mapping
