The Great Reshuffle is Reshaping The Way we Hire

We are in the Great Reshuffle. A record number of career changes, early retirements, and self-employed jobs have followed the Great Resignation. The labor market is becoming increasingly scarce. Job seekers are beginning to rethink their career paths, and for some, this has lead to leaving the workforce entirely. It is up to employers to provide the skill training and resources necessary to keep employees engaged.

1. Internal Mobility Programs Will Keep Current Employees

According to LinkedIn, employees at companies with high internal mobility rates stay almost 2x longer than those who don’t. Additionally, employees who are rewarded with new roles internally are 3.5x more likely to promote the company to others.  In 2022, we will see more internal programs created to better serve employees.

Companies are going to experience a shift in expectations from job seekers. Employees are no longer viewing a job as a means to serve their employers. Rather, they are viewing their jobs as a means to serve them. To retain current employees, companies must adapt to the new expectations of their employees.

2. Employers Need a Balance of Internal and External Talent

As companies hire more from within, they will need to fill the roles their employees leave. Around 70% of managers don’t want to let go of quality talent. This is a huge blocker to internal mobility.

About 56% of internal recruiters say that there are not enough qualified internal candidates. To make matters worse, 38% say it makes it increasingly difficult to diversify the workforce when they focus on internal mobility.

This is where recruiting companies come in.
