An organizational philosophy is a case study on how an internal global job market ensured a decentralized culture and continual organizational development, supported by employees’ individual drive.
Marianne Hamilton describes the journey taken by the Atlas Copco Group, where an internal global job market grew from an idea into one of the company’s most important success factors, leading to high job mobility andcontinual organizational development.
According to the internal global job market concept, all
open positions are advertised internally. This gives employees the opportunity to pursue a career path at the company wherever they are in the world. The concept is based on the individual’s own drive to take chances and take advantage of the opportunities available.
At Atlas Copco, “never recruit for the same position as before” became a mantra and one of the ten principles of the internal global job market.
