Promotion from within definition

Question
What does it mean when a company has a "promote from within" policy? 
Answer
Generally, a promotion from within policy means that the employer has stated a commitment to consider current employees for promotion opportunities before hiring candidates from outside of the organization.

Promoting from within the organization is typically a management goal, however, not a rule.
