8 ways to manage promotions: How CIOs can deal with promotions

Managing successful promotions requires identifying the right people early on and ensuring there are structures in place for their development

Most businesses promote from within as the recruitment process is time-consuming, costly and is not always the best way of finding the right candidate for a position.
