Internal mobility is the process of moving employees from one position to another within an organization.
And for many companies —77%, in fact— having a culture that promotes internal mobility and facilitates recruiting from within, is critical.
The benefits are obvious, and include faster time to hire, positions filled by individuals who have already proven to be a good fit culturally and whose working style you know to be effective.
It's easy to see why the companies surveyed by CareerXroads in its 2014 Source of Hire Report opted to fill "more than 41% of their openings from current employees.”
So what can your company do to improve internal mobility and recruit more from within?
