Promoting jobs internally is a strategy for hiring that tends to get overlooked by managers and HR teams. When looking at the dollars spent, it’s significantly cheaper than hiring externally and can save your HR team time and resources. According to recruitment statistics in 2020, nearly two-thirds of hiring professionals claim that their company needs to improve internal recruiting, even though it plays a crucial role in improving employee morale and retention. 63% of hiring professionals believe that internal hiring can accelerate the hiring process, and 69% think it can accelerate new hires’ productivity.
SHRM shared that employees at companies that hire and promote more internal candidates stay 41 percent longer than workers at companies with lower internal hiring rates, according to LinkedIn’s 2020 Global Talent Trends report.
It’s faster and cheaper to hire from within the organization because internal candidates already know the job and the organization.
Using The Bot Platform and automation, users can create a Jobs Board Bot that allows you to easily and quickly highlight available job openings within your organization and allow your existing staff and employees to apply for the position directly via Workplace or Microsoft Teams. Staff can browse jobs based on their region or departmental specialism and submit responses which can be saved to third party HR and applicant tracking systems.
In this period of The Great Resignation, keeping the staff you have happy and promoting internally have never been more important, and we can help to effectively support you if you decide to make this a priority.
