I'd like to ask about 2 phrases in the following passage I'm not entirely sure of:
This month it pays to be flexible and adaptable. You find things at work may be changing, such as a change of routine, a new employee changing the balance of human relations in the office, or a change of job scope or department.
Does 'it pays to be' mean 'one should be'?
Does the word "department" imply "transfer to another department"?
"It pays to be" means you will benefit from this.
I agree that the change of department means a transfer to another department.
