What is Lateral Move? | Meaning & Definition | Akrivia HCM

Lateral Move is a means for organizations to expand their human capital. The term refers to the movement of employees from one department within a company to another where the employee performs the same or similar duties, but in a different department with different job responsibilities, culture, and general atmosphere. In theory, Lateral Move allows an organization to fulfill horizontal (same department) and vertical (other departments) staffing requirements without incurring additional costs related to advertising, sourcing, interviewing, and retaining a recruit.
