Recruitment is not only about hiring people from outside the organisation. As leaders, we need to also consider our current team and in particular the impact of hiring on retention and promotion. More precisely, what will be the impact of hiring someone from outside our company be on the current team and is it in the best interest of the business and organisation.
By not enabling growth from within your ranks you can alienate your current team members and critically give them reason to look elsewhere for new opportunities.
When should you promote, how do you manage hiring from within your ranks, and should you actually consider moving people internally before you think they are ready?
These are just some of the topics I cover with Bastian Buch, Director Platform at Zalando and previously Director of Engineering at Delivery Hero. He is also the co-Founder of The Mentoring Club which is an incredible not for profit initiative connecting individuals with experienced mentors from around the world who donate their time to help others grow in their careers and ventures.
