Considering the current recruitment challenges the hospitality sector is facing, developing an internal leadership development plan to promote staff you already have makes perfect sense.
What’s more, offering the possibility of internal promotion will motivate empoyees and foster commitment to your brand, resulting in improved employee retention.
Your existing team are already familiar with your brand and its products, company culture and policies. You’d have to invest a lot of time in transmitting all this to new, externally sourced talent. Having an internal promotion plan also means that existing employees will adapt quickly to their new roles and become productive far more quickly, not to the mention savings in recruitment costs.
