UST Global Finds Success with Re-Hiring Sees Boomerang Employee Recruitment as Viable Mid to Long Term Strategy Globally

February 14, 2014 - Bangalore, Karnataka , India

With rising global evidence to suggest that re-hiring former employees can be a viable talent sourcing and retention strategy, UST Global, an information technology solutions and services company for Global 1000 enterprises, has intensified its global hiring practices to accelerate efforts in this area. In the last few quarters, it rehired around 225 employees across all age-groups and roles, including lateral hires.
In India this practice is catching on really fast, and Manu Gopinath, Global Head of Human Resources says, “Rehiring is more than a tactic, and it’s a strategic weapon in the war for talent. As an organization that has one of the highest retention rates in the industry, we take pride in getting some of our best talent back to our fold. The learning curve for these hires is much shorter, as they already know the organization culture and are able to be productive in a very short time frame. Also having experienced other organizations, they come back as absolute fanatics and evangelists of our organizational culture and value system.  In the connected world that we live in today, they make informed choices to join back our organization after following our growth story and connected with their friends who work at UST Global. Ultimately, it’s a win-win for both parties. We are also enhancing ways to stay connected with our alumni through traditional and online communication channels. This will definitely increase our ability to improve re-hiring in the coming years.”
Chandrasekaran Sundaresan, General Manager and Center Head for Chennai and a recent re-hired employee of UST Global said “The cultural alignment with the company, the desire to win and the challenges it throws for people to learn, contribute and grow are the top reasons. Even when I was away from the organization, I was in touch with the leadership and always considered myself as an extended member of the UST Global family and hence it was the easiest choice to make”
Added Manu Gopinath, “Once unusual, the re-hiring trend is expected to stay. Fast growing organizations like UST Global, which have a great work culture, will definitely have an upper hand in attracting, returning high performing employees. These “Outside-Insiders” as they are sometimes referred to within Apple, where Steve Jobs himself was one, can walk the fine line — balancing the deep understanding of the company’s culture with the right amount of perspective and independence to push the changes necessary for organizational growth. “
