Internal Hiring

An Untapped Lever in Today's Talent Climate

Today, only about 25% of roles are filled internally worldwide. With global talent shortages in most sectors, and a scarcity of skills still holding many organizations back, a lack of focus on Internal Hiring risks hindering productivity and growth. 

In association with The Josh Bersin Company, the Internal Hiring Factbook digs into the current trends around Internal Hiring, and how it can be an effective path to rapidly filling positions and creating a culture of growth in an organization.


Internal Mobility:
A Bright Spot in the Storm

Time-to-hire is increasing. Internal Hiring rates are falling. In this challenging talent climate, progressive TA leaders must find new and innovative ways to acquire and retain people. 

Internal mobility offers a bright spot in this stormy period. But how can organizations set themselves up for success in this space? 

Join experts from AMS and The Josh Bersin Company for a special webinar event, as they share data from the second Talent Climate research series entry - the Internal Hiring Factbook - and discuss the importance of focused internal mobility efforts to talent retention.

Case study

How Internal Hiring Transformed Santander's Talent Strategy

“Internal mobility is critical to Santander’s overall talent strategy. The omnipresent demand for new skills is becoming the standard, so any organization who wants to thrive needs to be agile in this space and support internal career mobility. Simply giving employees career path options based on past achievements or projects is no longer enough."

Michael Durrant, Senior HR Manager

“Organizations that want to succeed in this post-industrial era, where talent is scarce and hiring times are extended, have no choice but to think laterally about approaches to hiring, and career pathways.

Now, more than ever, there needs to be a culture of movement inside the company, whether those moves are part time, project based or full time. The potential cost savings, the prospect of cutting the time to hire by up to two weeks, and the direct impact on the employee experience and on long-term retention are all huge reasons to revisit and elevate internal hiring and internal mobility strategies."
