Internal Promotion Rate
What is meant by the Internal Promotion Rate?
Internal Promotion Rate is the measurement at which opened positions in an organization are filled by internal hires.

This may not justify the high productivity level of the employee, and the company may lose a subject matter expert of a certain area.
The process of internal promotions also possess certain benefits like:
- Lesser expenses as compared to external hiring
- Lesser time is spent on the training
