Does shuffling employees improve productivity?

There is no official research done to claim whether or not shuffling employees has improved productivity.

Productivity can be assessed at team levels only. Each team has its own chemistry. Individual team performance vectors cumulatively add up to organizations progress. Despite shuffling to other teams, an employee’s productivity depends upon his/her new boss, colleague’s team spirit, etc. There are cases where shuffling employees yielded good results, and not so much in other cases.

Still HR administrations exercise this option to retain employees who resign, so as to showcase “reduced” attrition numbers. The larger the organization, the more metrics are required to justify claims, as these are invariably associated with performance appraisals – for the HR department in this case. – No more resumes, no more job search.
