According to a poll, too many companies are failing to take advantage of the potential of “rebound” workers.
More than 2 in 3 (71%) of organisations, lack an offboarding procedure that encourages workers to leave on good terms and possibly return in the future.
Furthermore, 78% of organisations have trouble finding replacement workers; 21% of employers struggle to fill a position by the end of the departing employee’s notice period, and 22% struggle to find any replacement.
The ongoing great resignation is making the growing skills shortage—which is already a problem—worse for many organisations.
Employers frequently disregard the importance of boomerang employees as a potential remedy for this issue. When it comes to developing a good company brand, happy former employees who have positive things to say about their former employment are essential.
Returning former employees may provide a much-needed source of skilled labour. This not only enables businesses to address the skills gap, but it also ensures that time and resources invested in workers’ professional development will continue to be a wise investment.
Maintaining a positive connection with people who are deciding to relocate may be important in addition to employing strategies like more thorough training programmes for entry-level personnel and reskilling efforts for current employees.
