Career progression & mobility

Internal career progression and mobility are becoming a necessity for any company looking to attract and retain amazing talents, and to strategically grow their organisational success.


More than ever employees want to work with companies which can provide an opportunity for them to develop themselves and their careers over time.

However, many companies struggle to facilitate internal mobility and many have no broadly based succession planning – except at the most senior levels.
Why is career management and career development so important?
 Quite simply its good for your business. Most high performing businesses have highly skilled and long-serving employees. Not only are the long serving employees more skilled, they understand your business and culture, they can build on relationships to get things done and they have the confidence to suggest improvements and change.

If we offer people a process for moving to new roles we can keep high performers, people are being developed and challenged, we build a strong internal culture and overall engagement increases.

Some first steps for the employers to take:

– Make sure all vacancies are marketed internally

– Create policies to encourage managers to let their people move internally

– Invest in ‘transitioning’ people into new roles – to ensure they succeed

– Create a formal career coaching programme; and document potential career paths

– Highlight success stories about people who have moved from function to function etc

– Recognise bravery.


The process of implementing a suitable career progression and mobility structure can be demanding and time consuming, but many successful organisations can serve as a proof for this investment to be worth a while.
