Whats App Group Chat – Reasons for Employee Transfers in organisations

The discussion above highlighted many reasons why firms transfer employees to different departments. Some of the commonalities portrayed are to avoid monotony in the work of an employee. They do this by opting for training interventions rather than transferring the employee. Others focus on up-skilling the employee’s skill which boosts the morale. Also, a transfer is applicable when based on an organisation’s requirements which maybe niche. In cases where churning an internal resource poses a huge challenge and investment; organisation’s usually resort to an external resource as an acceptable alternative. Another reason is organisation restructuring and other factors that lead to a transfer depend on the organisation’s dynamics like expansion, processes, projects, services, ageing, new technology etc. All in all, it is safe to assume that so long as the above parameters have been met the option of transfer or job rotation is based on such requirements.
