In the past, job rotation and cross training were used as common leadership development methods in large organizations.
Now proven steps that made these experiences work are being used for other key positions within companies so that organizations have available bench strength and talent pools available when labor is needed in key areas.
They are also being used to cross-train staff who may be needed during temporary vacancies, such as illnesses or medical leaves.
Business disruptions can occur when companies do not have the right employees available at the right time. Employees resign or are taken away from key positions for other reasons, such as business growth or leaves.
Beyond the business needs, job rotation and cross training are also an excellent talent management tactic for providing skill and career development that early career workers desire as part of their employee experience.
