Barriers to internal hiring include:

  • Complex or ad-hoc formal process for hiring internal candidates that limits internal applications and creates a poor employee experience.
  • Lack of visibility of internal opportunities resulting in a perceived lack of growth in the company.

Internal hiring benefits the organization by:

  • Reducing disengagement due to career stagnation and boredom.
  • Retaining staff as internal hires, which lower rates of voluntary and involuntary exit.
