Finding quality people within minutes versus sorting through resumes for hours is a game-changer. Censia’s Talent Intelligence Platform was a great addition to our Talent Acquisition strategy!”

“Censia helped us find hidden talent for hard-to-fill roles. We weren’t having much luck finding candidates and Talent Intelligence surfaced high-quality people for us.”

Ed Sayson
Talent Acquisition Leader, Human Resources, ARC Document Solutions

“We’ve had a very strong response with building models and reaching out. We have an extensive agreement with another platform, but more and more of my recruiters are using their Censia solution first to get in there and get some results, so there’s a bit of an irony there that one is taking over the other. These talent networks have a lot of data but Censia understands the data with greater accuracy.”

Internal Mobility Metrics

Our internal mobility metrics important? Of course they are; without knowing how many employees are making these types of moves, you can’t get a clear picture of the talent flow at your company. If you don’t track them, you’re flying blind when it comes to retention, attrition, competency building, workforce planning for new roles, or market analysis….the list goes on.

Why not just look at total hires versus total separations? That’s one way to get an idea of what is happening with talent in your organization. Still, it isn’t as complete a picture as monitoring internal movements that occur between the different business functions or job levels.

Tracking internal mobility metrics can help you identify trends and areas needing improvement. If you see that many people are leaving the company after only a short time in their role, you might need to look at why that is and determine if you can do something to fix it. Maybe the role isn’t a good fit for the employee or didn’t receive the proper training or support.

If you see that many people are moving laterally within their job level, it might mean that there aren’t enough opportunities for employees to grow and develop their skills. You could look at ways to create more advancement opportunities or tailor training programs to help employees be better prepared for promotion.

The important thing is to start tracking internal mobility metrics and then use the data to make positive changes in your organization. With the right tools in place, you can ensure that your company has a healthy flow of talent and that employees can reach their full potential.

Internal Mobility Statistics

Internal Mobility Metrics are a set of statistics that measure internal labor movement or internal labor mobility, a term used to describe the internal transfer of employees from one department, division, plant, location within an organization, etc. Internal mobility also describes what happens when an employee transfers from one industry to another.

When internal employees move around inside an organization, they must be qualified for their new jobs and need the skills and qualifications required by the hiring company or government entity. These internal employees receive job-related skills such as customer service and IT support. The internal mobility metrics track internal staff where data can be compared with external hires and layoffs: this helps organizations find out if any policies could be put in place to retain talent or stop the brain drain.

The internal mobility metrics are also used to determine the propensity of internal employees to move and how likely they are to stay with the organization. The internal mobility statistics can help identify which jobs have a higher turnover rate and why employees leave their positions. This information is helpful for human resources professionals to understand what may need to be done to retain employees, such as offering more training or development opportunities.

Internal Mobility Best Practices

Several internal mobility best practices can help your organization improve its talent management strategy. One of the most important is to ensure a straightforward assessment process and track employee skills and competencies. This will make it easier to identify potential talent shortages and identify employees who may be interested in internal mobility opportunities.

When internal mobility is low, employers are missing out on opportunities to facilitate the development of high-performing employees. Internal mobility rates are low can sometimes be traced back to an unwillingness to make internal transfers or promotions because it requires additional time and effort. If internal mobility becomes a priority rather than just another assignment, your internal mobility rates will increase.

Another essential best practice is to foster a culture of openness and communication. Employees should feel comfortable discussing their career goals with their managers and be willing to explore internal mobility options if they become available. Managers should also be proactive in identifying internal mobility opportunities and be prepared to discuss them with employees who may be interested.

Finally, it’s crucial to have effective communication tools to support internal mobility. For example, internal social media sites can help employees keep up with internal talent movements within their organization.

How To Calculate Internal Mobility Rate

Employers who want to calculate their internal mobility rate can use the following formula:

IMR = (Number of Promotions / Total Number of Employees) x 100

This equation gives you the percentage of employees who have been promoted within a year. To calculate the total number of employees, use the following formula:

Total Number of Employees = (Number of Employees at the Start of Year – Number of Employees at the End of Year) / (Number of Months in Year)

For example, if an employer has 102 employees at the start of the year and 100 employees at the end of the year, the total number is 2,000 (102-100/12). If ten employees are promoted in a year, then the internal mobility rate is 5 percent (10/200).

Internal Mobility Rate can measure employee satisfaction and career development opportunities. It is calculated by dividing the number of promotions by the total number of employees. Internal Mobility Rate can improve employee satisfaction and career development opportunities by offering training and development opportunities and creating an environment where employees feel comfortable speaking up about their career goals and aspirations.

Internal Succession Planning

Internal succession planning is a process that allows internal staff members to move into new management positions as well as offer current employees opportunities for personal and professional growth. The internal mobility metrics can help companies identify internal talent, measure internal promotion rates, determine internal career paths and understand the careers of internal employees.

Companies continue to struggle with finding ways to increase employee satisfaction, which increases productivity. Internal mobility metrics help promote a more satisfied workforce while also increasing morale, so this means employers can expect an increase in business revenue when they have happy, satisfied employees. 

Employers can expect internal mobility metrics to assist them with finding ways to increase internal candidate pools, internal job satisfaction, internal employee retention rates, and internal career paths.

Internal mobility metrics are most successful when used as a tool for hiring managers who need timely feedback they can trust. By using internal mobility metrics, employers have better information to make better decisions about their employees. For example, by looking at the internal mobility metrics between an entry-level position and an executive-level position, managers could determine which positions typically move into management positions to hire more qualified candidates for entry-level positions. One of the most significant benefits of internal success measures is identifying internal talent that might otherwise go unnoticed.
