Cross-training is the process of training one employee in two or more positions within the organization. Cross-training can take place within the same team or department, but also across different environments. It helps to build redundancy and ensures that if someone is absent, another employee can take over their responsibilities. It also helps build stronger relationships between employees, particularly if training is provided through “job shadowing”, and can give employees insight into potential new career paths.
