Thinking of returning to a previous employer?

So you’ve left a great company and now want go back? You’re not alone – 74 per cent of us would consider doing the same!

Here at the CK Group, we have recently conducted a Linkedin poll asking, ‘Would you consider returning to a previous employer?’ With an impressive, 688 responses, 74 per cent of those said they would consider returning to a previous employer.

However, before making the jump, we recommend that you consider a couple of things first:

  • Be realistic: Are you simply looking back at things with rose tinted glasses? Take time to think back to the reasons why you left the company in the first place. We recommend that you draw up and pro’s and con’s list to help you make a balanced and reasoned decision. It is important not to delude yourself into thinking that your old job was more fulfilling and exciting than it really was.
  • Are you making a snap decision? Have you given yourself enough time in your current job to really assess factors such as work-life balance, job satisfaction, career development etc. It is important that you give yourself enough time to adjust.

For more information regarding our poll, please contact Catherine Gutsell on 01438 743 047 or email cgutsell@ckagroup.co.uk.
