Article Summary The article is an interview with Dave Almeda who is the head human resource for Kronos. The talking point of the interview is boomerang workers and the benefits of accepting them. The term boomerang refers to a previous worker who leaves a company and later down the line returns to the same company. Mr. Almeda gives good examples on why people decide to boomerang back to companies. He classifies boomerang employees into four sections. The first is a traditional boomerang, those employees who see opportunities elsewhere. The second is life-event boomerang employees, unpredictable life events that cause an employee to relocate. The third type of boomerang is the seasonal hires; this applies to retail and hospitality that have busy and slow periods.
