A new study shows people who quit their jobs at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic are now rethinking their decision. University of Iowa researcher Chad Van Iddekinge, calls these individuals “boomerang employees”.
“A big one that we hear about is thinking that the grass is greener on the other side, and that moving to a different organization will be better. I think what people often find is that the grass isn’t greener and they actually had it pretty good where they were before, and that leads them to pursue returning to a former employer.”
Iddekinge says it reinforces the importance of keeping good performance review records so employers can best assess the potential of a rehire.
