The Boomerang Effect: To Rehire Or Not To Rehire Former Employees Who Want To Return

Webinar: ID# 1023040
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Sometimes, the grass appears greener on the other side of the fence, but it can be much less green once you get there. For employees who leave a company to take a new position elsewhere, that can often be the case. And, more often than not, would like to return to your organization.

When a top performer leaves and expresses interest in returning, the employer’s first instinct may be to make space for them immediately. However, that might not be the best decision for the company. When is it wise to rehire a former employee, and when you should approach with caution? Even if it’s a great re-hire, what kinds of administrative red flags are out there? And, how should you handle things such as their 401(k) plans, vesting and PTO accrual?

Join us to find out when it’s a good idea to rehire a former employee, and when it is wise to say thanks, but no thanks. Stefanie Lomax, M.S., PHR, SHRM-CP of JLM HR Consulting, will walk you through the decision-making process before you make the call as to whether to welcome back a boomerang employee.
