Internal Transfers: What to Consider

When an employee comes to you and asks to move to another team or transfer out of your department entirely, what do you do?

As their manager, you’ve got some work to do before you give this employee an answer. First, decide if you can afford to let the employee move off of your team and if you can replace them. Then, to see if a transfer is the right decision for the employee and your company, there are a few things you need to consider. Find out why they want to move and how their performance reviews stack up before you reach out to HR and other teams or departments for openings.

You’ll want to hold on to valuable and hardworking employees, so it’s important to consider all factors and how a transfer can benefit the employee as well as your company.
