1. Describe the internal labor market of the company in terms of job stability (staying in the same job), promotion paths and rates, transfer paths and rates, demotion paths and rates, and turnover (exit) rates.

ANSWER: Sales Department (Full-time)

50% of the sales department stayed the same it was no changes

10% of the full-time transferred to a part-time position

5% of the full-time was promoted to an Assistant Sales Manager

0% of the full-time was promoted to Regional Sales Manager

35% exited the organization

Summary: The Company has a large amount of employees that stayed in their current position. Either people got demoted or choose to go to part-time positions. The small amount that was promoted shows that there is low opportunity to move up or employees are not eligible. No one was promoted to Regional Sales so that is an indication people are not eligible. The major issue is that 35% has exit the organization. Having a high turnover rate is not good for any company. Some reasons could be the small percentage moving into a higher position or demoted.

Sales Department (Part-time)

60% stayed the same in their current position

5% of the part-time transferred to the full time positions

10% of the part-time was promoted to Assistant Sales Manager

0% of the part-time was promoted to Regional Sales Manager

25% exited the organization

Summary: The company again has shown an indication that there is no opportunity to move up to Regional Sales Manager. A quarter of the employees have left the organization which shows there is an issue with the promotions. No employee wants to be stuck in a dead end job. Only a small percent was promoted to the Assistant Sales Manager and they have stayed in their current position because no one was given Regional Sales Manager.
