    By.. encouraging internal promotion, i.e. seeing if there is anyone suitable from within the company to fill a new post before they advertise the job to third parties.

    Should it be how, or why?

    The 'how' part is quite brief really, it doesn't go much further than offering training opportunities or additional responsibilities to existing staff members (and then subsequently promoting those staff members who fit the criteria). Some companies also have a structured internal progression system (with staff being 'promoted' each time they complete a year of service, or pass a specific exam, etc). Perhaps they might also offer instruction to individual managers to prioritise internal progression over external recruitment (maybe by limiting external recruitment resources, or requiring head office authorisation for recruitment budgets). The company dictates its own operating methods, so in order to encourage internal promotion, they must simply promote from within, which seems like a brief and boring answer.
