Considerations for Rehiring Employees _____________________
Rehiring employees can be beneficial to your organization.
Whether it’s a response to the tight employment market or seasonal employment rehiring, former employees are becoming more common. Rehiring employees can be beneficial to your organization, especially if they were strong contributors. You could save time and money since they are familiar with your business, and you do not need to provide them with the in-depth training required for onboarding new employees. A former employee also might have worked elsewhere since leaving your organization, which can be an opportunity to bring new skills, knowledge, and fresh ideas to your workplace.
There are also legal implications and potential liabilities to consider.

We spend a lot of time talking about what organizations need to do in order to be successful: things like candidate experience, employee experience, company culture, etc. One of the prerequisites of developing a world-class organization is having a human resources department that can partner with the business to make it happen. I hate to say it, but a mediocre HR team may or may not have the bandwidth to build a best place to work. But that doesn’t mean you’re out on your own.
