After the ‘yes’
After you get the green light, the real planning begins, so try and make it easy for your boss and everyone involved. With your boss’s blessing, head over to HR to see what they need to make your move official, and handle as many of the steps as you can yourself. The easier it is for everyone, the faster your official new role will fall into place. Don’t be surprised, though, if it feels like you are starting from scratch. You may have to complete an application, pass a background check, and fill out several forms. Make sure you understand the timing of your transition, the communication of your change in status and what’s included in your compensation package.
