94% of employers would rehire former workers, but only half of them would apply
Nearly all the 2,800 senior managers (94%) in a new Accountemps survey said they would rehire ex-employees who left their companies on good terms. Survey results showed, however, that only slightly more than half (52%) of the 1,000 workers polled would apply for a job with a previous employer. The reasons cited for not wanting to work for a former employer included: dissatisfaction with leadership (22%), didn't fit organizational culture (17%), unfulfilling duties (13%) and bridges burned by the company (11%). For employers considering rehiring former employees, Accountemps recommended that before starting the recruiting process, companies ask ex-employees what they're looking for in order to avoid previous problems. It also suggested companies follow all formal hiring procedures, including performing reference checks and making sure a return would benefit both parties. Accountemps said employers should put former workers through the standard onboarding process as well to get them up to date on company policies and procedures and to reassess returning hires' skills to make sure they're a good fit for the opening.
