Melbourne Mornings

There’s nothing better than starting off a cool Melbourne morning with strong coffee, delicious pastries and a lively debate around Internal Mobility.

As part of our Talent Management Roundtable Network, HCMS, together with the Department of Justice hosted a group of Recruitment and Sourcing Professionals from some of Melbourne’s leading organisations. We had the opportunity to listen, learn and lead a discussion around the benefits, issues and challenges with regards to Internal Mobility, or as our presenters PricewaterhouseCoopers, call it: Internal Agility!

I’m sure I speak for all the members when I say that Georgie and Shannon from PricewaterhouseCoopers were fantastic, their presentation was informative as well as inspiring and I know we all walked away with something valuable.

Here are just some of the key issues raised this morning:

  • Should Internal Mobility be more of a culture or a process?
  • Should internal candidates be preferred over external candidates?
  • Should we manage identical processes for internal and external candidates? If not, why should they differ?
  • How do we measure the success of our Internal Mobility program? Which metrics are most important? How and when do we measure them?
  • Do we look at time and cost to hire – typical metrics for an external process? Or do we measure the performance of the internal hire in their new role?
  • What about tracking voluntary turnover for those who weren’t successful – in other words our silver medalists?

A lot of food for thought - and that was all before 09:00 am!

Thanks again to the Department of Justice - a great morning was had by all and we’re really looking forward to the next event.

If you’d like to join us, please get in touch – we’d love to have you there.
