Are you capitalizing on the wealth of talent that exists within your organization? Overlooking the skills of current employees in favor of external hires is a common bias that can have a detrimental impact on employees' morale and work against diversity, equity, and inclusion goals. Focusing on building a healthy internal mobility program, however, can foster a culture of inclusion and promote the development and progression of underrepresented talent.
In this ERE/TLNT article, I describe 5 key areas important for advancing DEI goals via internal mobility:
- Using data to accurately understand each employee group’s mobility challenges
- Creating a trusted, transparent internal mobility process
- Opening networks by developing programs to support underrepresented talent
- Celebrating internal moves as a means of talent development
