Helen Quoted in HRCI's "3 Ways to Improve Internal Mobility at Your Organization"

3 Ways to Improve Internal Mobility at Your Organization

Clare Ciappetta, HRCI

“McPherson says organizations that embrace lateral mobility also have the opportunity to improve their work environment and culture. It lets employees who feel stifled in their current job move to a new position, giving them the chance to recharge and reconnect with the organization.

This is becoming more customary as the traditional career “ladder” becomes more of a “lattice” that lets employees “move over as they move up,” she says. It’s perhaps a more complicated path, but it can also be more rewarding, as long as organizations communicate with employees on how to navigate it.”

“I’ve seen organizations have great financial success, look to grow, and hire leaders into middle management positions as the hierarchy expands, only to lay off these very leaders first when times get tough. While these situations are often unavoidable, the main problem lies in why they hired these individuals in the first place.”- Helen McPherson, Principal Consultant at McPherson Consulting Group
