Movement Analysis

Movement analysis is a technique used to analyze personnel supply, specifically the chain or ripple effect that promotions or job losses have on the movements of other personnel in an organization.

Movement analysis enables the HR planner to select the desired mix or percentage of internal and external supply for those positions requiring replacements, ranging from a promote-from-within policy to the other extreme of replacing losses entirely through hiring personnel from outside the organization.
