Internal mobility resources improve talent development and create opportunities for employees.
To help New York Life retain talent and create career opportunities for its employees, new resources are now available to assist employees who are considering their next career move at the company. Since its launch last Fall, the Internal Mobility program has helped those interested in updating their resumes and developing their interview skills. As Talent Acquisition Head, Janet Wang, points out to employees, “Even if you’re not currently looking to make a move, taking a fresh look at your resume and career aspirations can help you focus on the skills and experiences you want to develop.”
The new internal mobility page on the company’s internal collaboration/communication platform makes it easy for employees to see the range of mobility resources. Employees can find information about professional development courses in resume writing and interviewing skills as well as access to a dedicated internal mobility recruiter who is there to provide personalized career counseling on a range of capabilities including career development planning, interview preparation, lateral career moves, resume coaching, and showcasing one’s skills.
Internal Mobility Recruiter, Michael Carrano, notes, “The strong response to the Internal Mobility program has been very gratifying and it continues to grow. Since September 2017, we have received nearly 200 inquiries regarding our program services, and had numerous employees who participated in the program successfully securing new internal job placements.”
This program is voluntary and confidential for those employees who have worked at the company for at least one year in a full-time role and are in good standing. Employees may sign up themselves for training or counseling, or they may be recommended for the program by HR Business Partners, managers, or recruiters.
