Job rotations allow employees to experience different jobs and their responsibilities. They are oftentimes used to help people develop their skill set and advance. Rotations can be temporary assignments or an employee may rotate for longer periods of times as their skills develop.
Job rotations are commonly used to cross train employees. This can give an organization greater flexibility and resilience in the event of downtime, employee illness, vacations or any other disruptions related to labor. Formally defined, job rotations are when employees periodically change their job responsibilities to provide or develop a broader understanding, perspective and view of the organizations systems. The practice of job rotations can also add a lot of value to an organization.
