Explain briefly transfers and promotions as internal sources of recruitment.
Internal sources: Internal sources of recruitment are the ones where job vacancies are filled from within the organisation. It can take the following forms:
1) Transfers: A suitable person identified for a profile is shifted from another department to the concerned department. It may lead to changes in duties and responsibilities and working conditions. This is helpful in avoiding termination and in removing individual problems and grievances.
2) Promotions: Vacant positions at the higher level are filled by suitably promoting employees at the lower level. To continue to work with greater efficiency and productivity, an employee needs encouragement and motivation. In this regard, promotion plays an important role. The promotion can be in the form of position and pay. The promotion provides a great deal of job satisfaction to the employee and serves the long-term interests of employees.
