To plan HR pipeline…
That`s means that you need to plan – how many members (TR,
LR, X) you will need in each period of your term
Do not forget to plan HR needs for the end of your term – how
will the LC look like, that you`ll leave to your successor.
Which tools can we use for talent planning?
First, Talent Capacity tools
Use members database – to keep all recent information about
XP of all your members.
Base your HR pipeline on VP’s plans (to see how many TR, LR, X
members LC will need in each period.
Use Performance Assessment Meetings to track members
performance and their future plans.
Talent Management Data Base

future plans into database
Review your database every Q, after each allocation and before
recruitment. (Send it with each Q report)

Be strategic about talent
•Think about how each position in the organization aligns with strategic
priorities- this means, you’ve to differentiate your workforce and know what
you’re going after for each position. Talent Planning
Build and use viable channels
•Establish “channels” to create viable candidate pools for potential openingsWhere will you find the right people, who will become active members and/or
take leadership roles? Hint- start with current & former members
(retention). Talent Promotion
Focus on diversity
•During selection, focus on recruiting diverse talent pipeline- diversity in your
team if managed correctly gives your team an edge and will increase results.
Be tactical when selecting candidates. Hint- use team/personality profiling
Create an outstanding culture!
•As the leader, you’re ultimately responsible for steering your people to
achieve the team goal. One strategy that works is to create an outstanding
team-culture. Make fun activities an explicit part of your job as a team
Identify your high potentials
•Succession Planning is important, one of the first thing on your mind when
you become a team leader in AIESEC should be- who in my team has the
potential to replace me?- this means, you have to start preparing them for the
start- we used to call this “sneaky stuff”
Take a personal approach
•As our faces are different, so is our problems, needs and aspirations- Know
what is important to each of your team member- why did they join AIESEC,
what do they want to get out of the experience? How can you make their
work in AIESEC easier?
Recognize & Reciprocate
•Always recognize your member when they do a good job and even when you
see they are putting a lot of efforts to do a good job but the results are not
coming out. Establish relationships that are mutually beneficial- check on
them to see if they are getting what they want out of AIESEC
Review and Audit your Pipeline
•As the leader, you’re ultimately responsible for reviewing what works and
what doesn’t. It is best case practice to once in a while review and audit your
pipeline- will it take you to the finish line? What else do you need to do?
Base your Education plan on HR
pipeline – you see when you will
need new leaders, when TR
members will get new roles, when
LC members will go to X – so
provide them with needed
education on time.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO IDENTIFY
• Leaks - directly impact the Retention Rate.
• Bottlenecks - not using all your capacity.
• Time –
time to flow between opportunities. Identify
how fast you can supply talents.
• Output -
How many members are finishing each
stage. This is your capacity to deliver our promise to
society: Change Agents!
