3 reasons why DEIB is important for talent mobility

Employees need to be able to make the most out of their talent, right? Therefore, they might need to move around in the organization. A talent mobility strategy can help you here. It’s about enabling employees to change positions. For this, you need to know your employees’ skills and backgrounds. And you need to determine where in the organization their skills fit best.

For employees, talent mobility is an opportunity to gain new skills and experience.

For a talent mobility strategy to be successful, you need to have a clear understanding of DEIB. Read on to discover why.


Why is DEIB important for talent mobility?

DEIB is short for diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. It’s about building a workforce that resembles society in all its diversity of backgrounds and skills. If you combine that with a thought-out talent mobility strategy, it can lead to surprising results:

1. A company employees want to work for

Companies with DEIB policies in place are companies that employees want to work for. They do so for social and business reasons. Employees feel like they will be able to develop their skills and capabilities. And that they can grow without having to compromise who they are. So, DEIB policies are a good way to attract the best talent out there. You need it for your talent mobility strategy to be a success.

2. Increasing retention

It’s great if employees want to work for you. But it’s even better if they wish to stay for a very long time. Because for a talent mobility strategy to be successful, you need committed employees. A good DEIB policy is about building a welcoming and open workplace. A place where employees feel like they belong. This is crucial for employee retention. People want to work at a company where they feel comfortable and connected.

3. Role models to mentor junior employees

Workplaces that implement DEIB policies create great opportunities for role models to become mentors for junior employees. Actively supporting employees of different backgrounds will help them grow. And at a later point in their career, these employees will give back to others. They will give others the same chances that they had. And they will mentor them to grow, creating a cycle of talent mobility.
