Of course, navigating internal mobility in a company is easier said than done. It requires a plan, program, and delivery.

What is internal mobility?

Internal mobility is a term used to describe the movement of your employees to new, internal opportunities within your organization. It includes both vertical mobility, so usually an upward movement between job levels, and horizontal mobility, which describes moving within the same job level.

By encouraging your workforce to improve their skills and remain engaged in the company, you can then fill new positions internally as well as encourage senior staff to mentor new team members when they come on board.

How does internal mobility benefit your organization and your employees?

By promoting internal mobility in your team, you have the chance to change the culture of your approach to talent. If you have processes in place that alert you to internal talent, you can nurture career ambitions and improve retention rates among your team. Plus, you already know that your employees have the right culture fit to work for you.
