An Accountemps survey finds that 94 percent of senior managers are open to rehiring boomerang employees. The survey defines "boomerang" employees as employees who leave their employment on good terms.
Unfortunately, former employees are not as willing to come back, according to the survey. Only 52 percent of former workers are likely to apply for a position with a previous employer. Of the 48 percent not willing to come back, 11 percent cite the reason as "having burned a bridge" with their previous employer.
