For 10 years, business in Crimea has begun to appoint “internal candidates” to the positions of leaders more often
Compared to the 2012 year, Crimean companies began to appoint internal candidates to management positions more often and less often to attract top and middle managers from outside. HR managers took part in the survey of SuperJob, a high-paying job search service.
In 45% of companies in Crimea, they prefer to appoint one of the already working employees to senior positions. According to HR managers, in this situation, an internal candidate is preferable to an external one, since he knows all business processes from the inside and, most likely, is highly motivated. In 27% of companies in management positions there are approximately equal numbers of employees who have “grown up” inside the company and who came from outside. Only % of companies typically seek external candidates for leadership positions. As a rule, such a position is explained by the desire to strengthen the team with a specialist with a fresh look and new competencies , the press service of the service reported.
Small business more often than large enterprises and organizations prefers to «grow» personnel (27%). Companies hiring external managers are slightly more common among organizations with a headcount of 100 to 51 people (21%).
Among employers from different industries, internal candidates are most often appointed to senior positions in the areas of logistics (66%), information technology (52%) and finance (51%). Those who prefer external candidates are slightly more in construction and manufacturing companies (13 and % respectively).
In the years that have passed since the similar SuperJob study, Russian businesses have become more likely to appoint internal candidates to management positions.
