Why you should have Doors Open for the Boomerang Employees?
Rohit Singh VP of Customer Engagement Schedule Free Consultation
  • It has not been that long when, in business, the employees used to quit their jobs and move on to follow new opportunities. It generally pointed out to the fact that they had to engage with their former employers

    Today, more organizations are not taking things personally, and they have a different perspective on ex-employees. They now take these former employees as a part of the future, rather than sticking to past things. They are accepting the notion of hiring back the boomerang staff. 

    They show more interest towards the people who previously quit their organization on good terms to grab the new opportunities. Still, later on, they made up their minds to return to the former company.

    So, keeping the door open for the leaving employees indicates a significant change in many employers’ attitudes. 

    Approximately 9 out of 10 hiring decision-makers showed interest to rehire a former employee who earlier quit the job and was on good terms.

    When an esteemed worker departs

    When your staff members make up his or her mind to move on, whether it is for some good opportunity, retirement, for personal reasons, or it is something else, and they depart on an optimistic note, ensure that you, being an employer:

    • Make them realize that this farewell is not going to last forever. 

    Notify employee’s that you will happily rehire them whenever they wish to return. Tell them that you will love to have them on board in the future too. 

    • Tell them that you can act as a reference for them. Helping ex-employees to move ahead by demonstrating their good performances does leave a lifelong impression on them. 

    If they do not return to your company for many reasons, they are more likely to refer brilliant people they are familiar with to you.

    • Keep in touch with them. You can do this by staying in contact with professional networking platforms like LinkedIn, an excellent podium associated with your existing and former employees. 

    Try to reach out to them directly sometimes in a year through an email, to know how they’re doing, and keep them updated on the company’s news now and then.

    When a former employee chooses to return 
    • If a boomerang employee shows interest to rejoin your company, don’t waver to get in touch with his present employer. For simply asking to know the reason for their come back, it makes the employee feel dissatisfied

    Also, there can be the other part of the story besides the professional front that makes him or her decision to come back to your organization.

    • You must have a formal interview and the onboarding process while hiring a boomerang employee, even if the former employee is returning in just a year. It is because, during this year, things might have changed in your company. 

    For instance, you might have new things, objectives, and policies in place. The former employee might require some training if some new technology has been implemented in the company since they left.

    • Make the other team members aware of the fact that you might rehire a former employee. It makes your employees happier that their company shows the willingness to rehire them at some point in time. 

    Allow your employees to come up with any concerns and spare time to talk to them about how this rehiring can benefit the company and the team.

    Though this is not always possible that the leaving employee returns to his former company. Still, some employees reconsider their decision more than ever when they realize that their former employers welcome them. So, it is essential to keep the doors open for boomerang employees and prevent skilled talent from leaving the company.
