Definition: Career Mobility

Career mobility refers to the movement of employees across grades/ positions (both upward and downward) or a complete change in occupation. Career mobility can be a result of both – the choice of the employee or the choice of the employer.

An employee may himself opt for career mobility because of a potential of higher pay or better job role in a new job or occupation. It may also be imposed by the company as a part of mergers, acquisitions or restructuring. Promotions subject to the change in job location are a good example of employer driven job mobility.

Career mobility is directly related to job advancement, career development and personal satisfaction. It ensures that employees, over a period of time, move to job roles suitable to their skills, goals and aspirations.
