A recent employer survey by SD Worx, in which nearly 1,400 European companies shared their future intentions regarding HR, leaves no room for misunderstanding: internal mobility is top of mind. Companies are increasingly looking inwards for talent. About 1 in 3 organisations have already launched internal mobility projects in the past 12 months, while another 24% plan to do so in 2021.
