Job Rotation & Cross-Training: A Step-by-Step Plan for Making It Work

Duration: 60 minutes

What would you do if a key employee announced her resignation tomorrow? Would you be ready to move someone else into her position immediately? Even though job rotation and cross-training programs are strategically essential, they're seldom seen as urgent — until it’s too late. Don’t let it happen in your organization. This program will show you how to get it done. (more details below)

* Approved for 1.0 recertification credit hour through HRCI & SHRM.


WHY ATTEND

Having a high-value employee you really count on is great. It's also a huge risk.

What if an illness or an emergency pulls her out of the office indefinitely? What if she just quits? The cost of finding, hiring, and training a replacement is huge. Even more important, think of the impact on productivity, on customers, and on the business overall.

That's why it's absolutely essential to be ready. And one of the most effective ways to be ready is a job rotation and cross-training program—a strategy that builds redundancy and prepares your organization for unexpected turnover.

Even though job rotation and cross-training programs are strategically essential and not hard to implement, they often don’t seem immediately urgent—until it’s too late.

Don’t let it happen in your organization. Join us for Job Rotation & Cross-Training: A Step-by-Step Plan for Making It Work.
