If you sense burnout through the ranks, consider job rotation, and offer short-term assignments in different divisions.

Benefits include cross-functionality and cross-communication. To get the most from rotation, put these strategies in place:
  1. Talk to your plateau-dwelling employees about the opportunities they seek.

  2. Give them control and ownership of the rotation policy by letting them identify internal opportunities and negotiate the details of the move.

  3. Communicate the policy clearly with everyone.
