Career Mobility


Personnel decisions are more personal than ever. Welcome to the New ROI — a return on individuals.

Many organisations are struggling to attract new talent in a candidate short market and also retaining existing talent as many take on new roles with other companies.


With 66% of employees saying that they are not satisfied with career prospects at their company , businesses need to look inwards and address what they can do to to invest in the career development of their employees that will progress their development within the organisation.


Replacing an employee currently costs upwards of £20,000 — and that doesn’t account for creating a business case, the time spent hiring or lost productivity during the downtime between a person leaving and a new hire starting. It’s an expense that can be mitigated by prioritising internal mobility and supporting career paths within the business.

 

Organisations that focus on internal mobility — and invest in reskilling and upskilling — will build a more adaptable, cross-trained workforce, resulting in increased productivity, effectiveness and employee retention. LHH helps organisations solve their employee skill needs and provide redeployment services to make sure they get the most from their workforce talent – now and in the future.

Building the truly renewable workforce

  • Our approach
  • Career mobility journeys
  • Reskilling & upskilling
  • Talent matching

Shifting from a replaceable to a renewable workforce means believing in the infinite power and potential of every human being to grow and re-invent themselves throughout their careers. Internal talent development and mobility is not only the right thing to do, it’s one of the most effective ways employers can help their people — and it’s also cost-effective.


Career mobility is more than addressing at-risk populations or driving promotions, it’s about lifelong employability through continuous employee development. At LHH, our approach addresses immediate redeployment needs and includes future-focused roadmaps for ongoing career development — in a single, seamless, consistent experience.


And for those employees who do not land internally and whose journey transitions them outside of their organisation, we have a seamless user experience from career mobility to outplacement.
