Job Rotation

The practice in which a person changes positions in an organization frequently for a certain period of time. For example, a new hire may work in operations for a few months, then accounting and finally in human resources. Job rotation is intended to give a person well-rounded insight into how an organization functions. It may be done especially for management trainees.
