Nurturing Talent from Within: The Power of Internal Mobility

In the past year, 16 of the 19 global industries LinkedIn analysed saw an increase in internal mobility via promotions and internal role transfers (Source: LinkedIn Global Talent Trends May 2023).

But, people are more open to leaving the organisation (over considering an internal move) if they don’t feel connected to the organisation.

Employees who feel connected are more likely to be satisfied with their jobs (96%) vs employees who feel disconnected (60%). Only 13% of connected employees expect to leave their current role within 12 months, and this answer nearly doubles for disconnected employees (24%) (Source: Enboarder).

Which begs the question: How do you build programs that help employees find purpose and build connections – with colleagues, and with the organisations values and goals – within the organisation?
