As featured on LinkedIn via Caroline Thomas Lingham, it sounds like a crazy idea and a waste of time for any organization to re-apply for your current job; however, the end result is to make a commitment to manage people for the right reasons and drive success for yourself, the business and for your employees.

If re-applying for the same role would be a policy, Thomas Lingham says managers would behave differently towards their employees if they had to pitch for their jobs each year. Employees would definitely have higher expectations of their managers. It would certainly drive some desired behaviors where managers:

a) Care more about managing people to achieve results and manage employees’ careers

b) Drive some fairness and internal equity within the organization

c) Reduce selfishness and practice servant leadership

And in the end, isn’t all about inspiring people (not only your employees) to do great things?

Not sure about a re-interview, but reviews can also be a way to drive fairness and internal equality. The point being, even the people who may not get a chance to express themselves, can bring something useful to the table.
