    Department to shift their employees to.

    "The office management didn't have any department to shift their extra employees to."

    Please check.

    Re: Department to shift their employees to.

    I'd change "any" to "a". Alternatively, "There was no department to which the office management could move their extra employees".

    Is it possible in this sentence to move "to" at the end of the sentence?

    "There was no department, which the office management could move their extra employees to."

    Yes, you can move "to" to the end. However, you need to remove the comma after "department".

    Re: Department to shift their employees to.

    Yes. Note, though, that it's quite formal. Depending on your audience, you might say "The managers couldn't find anywhere else for their extra employees to work".
