This measure calculates the percentage of middle management/specialist positions (i.e. roles for managers with budgetary and/or supervisory responsibility who report to senior management and/or line managers) that have been sourced by internally promoting existing employees in the past three years. It is part of a set of Supplemental Information measures that help companies evaluate additional variables not covered elsewhere for the "recruit, source, and select employees" process.

Percentage of management positions filled by internal promotion versus external recruitment for middle management/specialist employees for the past three years
Middle management/specialist refers to managers with budgetary and/or supervisory responsibility who report to senior management and/or line managers. Typically they would have supervisors and/or line managers report to them. This staff level also includes specialists. Sample titles might include functional vice president, function/department manager, and process/line manager.
Supplemental information is data that APQC determines is relevant to decision support for a specific process, but does not fit into the other measure categories such as cost effectiveness, cycle time, or staff productivity.
