Task IV: Develop a New Group Identity and Make New Bonds

A newly transferred employee may continue to maintain ties with work friends in the former organization. The bonds are typically not severed in one quick cut. The detachment from people, surroundings and routines of The Old takes time, but eventually the individual will look to The New as home. Visits to the former group and phone calls to former colleagues begin to diminish. Workplace needs are, more and more, filled by the new colleagues; less time is spent thinking about what was.

The energy from old bonds is now being invested in new bonds. There is a new reaction by the employee to memories of The Old, and fewer feelings of grief are generated. The person begins to reorganize his or her own view of the new workplace situation, with the former work group recognized for its past value.
