According to an Economic Times report, as businesses are stepping up their technologies and services, IT services providers like Mindtree, Birlasoft and LTI are asking their former employees to join them back. 

Looking into the social media post, it read as: “Persistent is hiring and we want you to convert your alumni status to active status! We’re seeing great momentum in the market right now and we currently have over 600 positions waiting for someone like you." The post also had a detailed description of the skills it was seeking. 

This move comes as a great source of finding workers who know exactly what the company wants. It will also be useful because the software services providers do not have to highlight their uniqueness during recruiting. Also, bringing back former employees is an added advantage.

“There is no doubt that remote onboarding and speed to productivity is that much easier to achieve in case of ex-employees, as they are already aware about the organization culture, people and processes,” said Arun Rao, chief people officer at Birlasoft.

Highlighting about Birlasoft - it is currently hiring in areas like Infrastructure skills along with AWS, BI skills like Informatica and Datastage, Springboot, apart from regular technology roles. The firm is also heading to create a technology backbone to formally manage this talent supply chain. 

“As a practice, we carry out a detailed assessment and post-separation survey of the real reasons for their leaving the organisation. This helps us connect with the talent, gauge their comfort in the new assignment and understand if the reason for taking up the new assignment has met their aspiration. We stay in touch with the employees and inquire about their interest to return on a regular basis,” said Paneesh Rao, chief people officer, Mindtree.

Looking into the exact numbers of bringing back employees is difficult to say right now but in cases like Mindtree, the employees, who are returning account for 10-15 percent of the total talent intake over a given period. Most of the companies are thinking that, while bringing back old hands means they can hit the ground running as the employees are already familiar with its basic culture and practices, ET further reported. 

“Previous employees form an attractive pool for open positions. This is because they have a rich understanding of the company’s culture and can assimilate in the organization very quickly,” said Ajay Tripathi, Chief Human Resources Officer, LTI.

“We have received great response from women professionals across industry and our ex-women employees particularly have shown high interest in resuming their career through it,” said Tripathi. Meanwhile, the company aims at bringing ex-women employees, as well as other women returning to work after a sabbatical.
