Abstract
Objectives The main objectives of this study were to acquire a comprehensive understanding of job rotation and its practices, design a job rotation framework to offer guidance for organizations and to modify the framework based on the interview results. Summary Job rotation as an HR method has received considerably much attention during the past few decades. However, the literature results are scattered, and their implications are rarely interpreted in a practical way. This has resulted in situation where acquiring a holistic understanding of job rotation is challenging and often time consuming. To address this research gap, a job rotation framework was created based on prior literature findings and developed further with the feedback collected from HR professionals. Conclusions The interviews revealed the Job Rotation Framework addresses the most relevant aspects of job rotation and helps the user to considerer the concept from various viewpoints. The utility of the framework lies mostly in its guiding function. The framework was found to be useful as an initial tool for creating a job rotation program, but its suggestions should not be adopted without considering the organizational environment in question.
