As part of an expansion, our company plans to shift the human resources and finance departments to different floors, away from the business. We're not changing our HR focus or team structure, but I'm worried we'll lose the tight interaction that HR has with business units. Another concern: If HR becomes a destination, instead of a quick Q&A in the hallway, employees and managers may feel less comfortable approaching us. How do we sustain our collaborative culture during this transition?
