Job rotations (cubed) as an inducement for lawyers to join (Philips)

A one-page job posting seeks a lawyer to join the 170-professional legal function of Philips has three references to “job rotation.” The opportunity to mover around within a law department may have some appeal to some lawyers, mostly very junior ones, but three proclamations about rotation opportunities makes too much of it.

“We also promote excellence and career development though constant quality control and scheduled job rotation.” Thirteen lines later: “Our job rotation program allows our lawyers to gain insights into many aspects of our multi-national business.”

And, in case a prospect missed those two references, the legal function, “an ‘open, dynamic learning organization’ that offers extensive opportunities for constant skills enhancement,” is “looking for people who value the prospect of job rotation.”

I’m all turned around.
