Research from i4cp has long shown the benefits of talent mobility for talent development, retention, and overall business performance. But the recent i4cp Accelerating Workforce Readiness study found that:
- 39% of survey participants said that for most employees it is easier to find a job externally than internally in their organizations
- 43% indicated that managers at their organizations often hoard high-performing talent rather than encourage internal movement
- Only 12% indicated that their organizations recognize / reward managers for talent movement
Further, when asked what source of skills and capabilities presented the greatest opportunity to your organization in the next 1-3 years, far more indicated internal talent marketplaces than any other source (e.g., gig workers/freelancers, internships/co-ops, outsourcing, apprenticeships, etc.). But very few organizations have successfully implemented such internal talent marketplaces because they require a lot of work and prerequisite steps to do well.
So when it comes to talent mobility and building out internal talent marketplaces, where do you start? What is working, and what are some lessons learned? What are key best and next practices to consider?
Come ready to share and discuss all of these questions and more, as i4cp works to build out a practical how-to guide on this topic.
The i4cp Workforce Planning Exchange is a group of workforce planning and related professionals who come together to share and discuss their challenges, successes, lessons learned, and leading practices in striving to accelerate workforce readiness at their organizations. The goal of the group is to share information and insights, and develop and share tools and practices that will aid in enhancing workforce readiness and workforce planning capabilities.
This meeting is exclusively for members of the Workforce Planning Exchange.
