Job Rotation & Cross-Training: More Essential Than Ever in Today's Tight Job Market

Duration: 60 minutes

<<UNLIMITED PARTICIPANTS -- INVITE YOUR ENTIRE TEAM!>>

What would you do if a key employee resigned tomorrow? Could you quickly hire a replacement? Is another employee trained and prepared to step in? We’ve always asked these questions, but perhaps  not with the urgency we should be feeling in today’s tight labor market.


WHY ATTEND

Having a high-value employee you really count on is great. It's also a huge risk because if that person’s work suddenly can’t get done, it could have a huge impact on productivity, customers, and on the business overall.

That's why it's more important than ever 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.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • A step-by-step checklist for implementing a job rotation program in your organization
  • How to work with managers and individual contributors to “free up” time to learn additional functional skills
  • Best practices for evaluating how well your job rotation program is working
  • How job rotation and cross-training link to career development and succession planning processes within your organization
  • How to get buy-in from employees who might feel threatened
