Employers have a hard time managing internal job moves, survey suggests
While offering the possibility of a job move within a company his a key attraction and retention tool for most employers, the number of companies that actually have an internal mobility programme currently in place is relatively low, a recent survey by recruitment specialists Futurestep has been able to reveal.
The poll of more than 1,000 executives found that 32 percent of executive level employees had to keep their intentions to apply for new positions within their company a secret.
People who were interviewed whose employer did have an internal mobility programme were asked how news of opportunities were passed onto internal staff. Close to a majority (40 percent) said news was spread via a dedicated internal mobility portal, while nine percent said a dedicated email or newsletter was used. Both options were used by 29 percent.
“Successful internal mobility programmes help hiring managers learn about the skills, experiences and aspirations of internal candidates, while employees learn about new roles that will allow them to contribute to the organisation in new and different ways,” David Marzo, Futurestep vice president and general manager commented.
