Recruiting employees from outside your organization for both mission and culture fit is easier said than done. Oftentimes, you run a much better chance of recruiting from within your organization.

If your organization is not actively considering employees for potential promotions and to fill other vacant slots, take a cue from successful organizations like Apple, General Electric and Nordstrom.

Make a commitment to grooming and promoting the talent you already have. Follow these tips:

  • Identify employees who have the potential to move up, and test their mettle by offering them challenging special projects.
  • Communicate with them about career trajectory frequently.
  • Build specific achievement milestones into their regular performance reviews.
