Bench

The term “bench” (also known as the "pipeline") refers to an organization’s ongoing need to have a pool of talent that is readily available to fill positions at all levels of management (as well as other key positions) as the company grows. At each level, different competencies, knowledge, and experiences are required; to keep the bench filled, the organization must have programs that are designed to develop appropriate skills sets.
