“In an age in which U.S. businesses are scrambling to replace retiring baby boomers, Elicia Pegues Spearman is taking a proactive stance to ensure that the knowledge and skills of seasoned talent is shared and that new workers are competent and confident.
Since becoming VP of Human Resources for Connecticut-based electronics manufacturer Hubbell Incorporated’s Commercial and Industrial Group in 2016, Spearman has championed a comprehensive talent development and succession plan. Part of the succession planning allows new talent to spend several months shadowing soon-to-retire employees. That ensures the vital knowledge and experience the retirees have accrued over years with the company doesn’t simply walk out the door.”
“You have to be comfortable making decisions that aren’t just black and white or clear cut,” she notes. “But if you lead with knowledge and integrity, ascertain the facts, analyze them, and communicate well, then chances are your decisions are well thought out and well received.” She also stresses the importance of HR working to establish trust from both management and non-management employees.”
