Succession planning a growing need as population ages

MANKATO — Retirement of baby boomers is a big topic in the business community as a shortage of workers makes it harder to find the next generation of employees.

"Succession planning is a necessity. We're dealing with an aging population, and there have been a lot of changes in recent years where people do business differently. Farms have grown to very large operations where they have a lot of staff and may have an international reach," said Honey Burg, co-owner of TLP Co.
