    Don't Let Productivity Tank

    Do you provide training for internal employees when they transition into a new role? Or do you let them free fall and cross your fingers? Most companies lack a formal training process for internal transfers – to the detriment of productivity and quick success.

    "Companies assume since the employee already knows the organization, she'll naturally integrate into the position," says Ed Chaffin, President of IMPACT Group. "However, research proves internal moves can be more difficult than joining a new company."  

    Michael Watkins conducted significant research on the topic.* In a Harvard Business Review article, he shares:
    •67% of all executive transitions are internal moves and promotions
    •70% of leaders rated their internal transition as difficult
    •35% of leaders rated their internal move as more difficult than joining the company as a new hire

    Internal moves are especially hard for senior leaders, who are expected to immediately tackle ambitious KPIs and lead multiple team members. What if that leader relocated for the position? "The dynamics of relocation alone are a challenge," comments Ed. "Add in the demands of quickly integrating into a leadership role and the employee is completely overwhelmed."
