Getting transferred from one department to another is often used as a punishment by companies. If you work in a company and you are being forcibly transferred to another department or job role that you do not want, you might want to know about the 5 fail-safe ways to stop your transfer we have mentioned here. All these methods require you to take the initiative and not wait for someone to help you.
  1. Talk about It: The first thing you should do with regard to stopping your transfer is to talk to the right people. If you have had a bad altercation with your boss and he or she is forcibly transferring you, you might want to talk to the HR of the company. The HR would talk to your boss or other employees and would surely stop the transfer if you are not at fault.
    It may also happen that the HR decides to transfer you without letting you know about it. In such a case, talking to your boss would help as your boss might not want to lose you and he or she might use the power to stop your transfer. Talking to the right person always helps, you just need to know who the right person is.
  2. Increase Your Value: When you donít want to be transferred to another department, a useful thing you can do is to increase your value in the organization as well as your department. You can help everyone to do their jobs so that your colleagues help you to stop your transfer by letting your boss know how awesome you are. You can also take on some more work or start to learn to multi-task.
    Another thing is to never say that something is not in the scope of your work. Be willing to take on new challenges and find a solution for them. When your boss sees these changes, he or she would certainly do his or her best to stop your transfer.
  3. Train Yourself: If you are not in a position to take on new work as you lack the skills, you can stop your transfer by training yourself. You can join any of the professional training programs widely available in the market that are relevant to your job. Even if you have to pay up a small fee for professionally training yourself a new skill, donít hesitate to do that because it would help you to stop for getting transferred.
    You can also join any of the free or low-cost online training programs if you donít have the time to attend classroom training. After the training, you can be a valuable asset to the company and whether your boss likes you or not, he will be compelled to keep you in the same department.
  4. Work Harder: When you are supposed to be transferred in a few days then you need to make sure that you prove your worth in a short while. Donít be eager to leave the office on the dot of time and never be late in the mornings. Always remember that a bit of extra effort put in by you could help you to save your current position in the job.
    You should also remember that you can prove yourself to be extra valuable only if you give your 100% at the job. Do not sit in the office late if you arenít working as it may go against you. Do not show off your extra work to anyone. Just be a silent over performer and you will be rewarded.
  5. Suggest Someone Else: A sure shot way of stopping your transfer at work is to recommend someone else. If you donít want to get transferred, talk to your boss about it and it may also happen that your boss thinks that you are too valuable to lose and asks you to suggest someone else.
Be ready with a name to suggest by talking to your colleagues about the vacancy in the other department. It may happen that one of your colleagues wishes to get transferred to the other department. If not, you should use your convincing skills to ask a colleague to get transferred instead of you.
