Study: Nearly One-third of Workers Going Back to Previous Employers

ATLANTA - April 5, 2016
Workers planning a dramatic exit from their job may want to think twice about burning bridges with their employer. According to the latest WorkSphere survey from national staffing company Spherion, and conducted online in March 2016 by Research Now™ among more than 1,000 full- and part-time workers, nearly one-third (29 percent) of American workers have returned to a previous employer after leaving for some time. An additional 41 percent said they are open to being a “boomerang” employee and potentially making such a return.
