Despite the fact that internal job candidate assessment is a critical staffing function, many companies conduct internal staffing poorly. Because employees are "known" by their managers and organizations, there can be a mistaken assumption that we do not need to be systematic or deliberate about promotions or transfers. This can be particularly problematic in smaller firms where most employees regularly work with each other and feel that they know each other's capabilities. This is not true, and organizations of all sizes need to think strategically about how they assess employees and staff. In Assessing Internal Job Candidates, some of the primary goals of internal assessment are discussed, followed by a review of various assessment methods. This book considers two internal assessment models and ways of evaluating the effectiveness of an internal assessment system.
