Retain staff by publicizing internal mobility efforts

by on
in HR Management,Human Resources

A new survey of LinkedIn members found that 85% of employees may be either passively or actively seeking a new job—and that most workers who changed jobs recently did so because they thought jumping ship was their best shot at career advancement.

The survey shines a spotlight on a perception gap between HR and employees.

LinkedIn found that 69% of HR pros believe their internal mobility programs—mentoring, career-development and promote-from-within initiatives, for example—are effective and well known to employees. Yet just 25% of employees surveyed said they were aware of their employers’ internal mobility programs.

Interesting tidbit: Prospective job changers most commonly told LinkedIn they wanted better pay and benefits. Those who had already moved on said they did so for greater career opportunities.
