Enterprise boomerangs keep coming back

A boomerang hire is someone who leaves our organisation and then re-joins at a later date.

Many companies do not consider re-employing individuals who have left to pursue new opportunities, but we do.

Enterprise is always keen to stay in touch with leavers. Boomerang hires bring existing company and industry knowledge and a fresh perspective.

Boomerang employees often realise that the grass isn’t always greener or they lose the travel bug. It proves Enterprise is a great place to work.

Katie Richardson is a fantastic example of a boomerang hire. She joined Enterprise in 2009 and worked in three different rental branches. She was promoted to management assistant and then relocated to the Northern head office as accounting co-ordinator before being promoted to senior accountant at EBS where she stayed for twelve months.

After a brief absence outside the business, Katie returned to work for Enterprise and has recently been promoted to assistant manager at Penrith.

“I needed to relocate for family reasons. Handing my notice in was incredibly hard, I was shaking and on the verge of tears,” Katie explains.

“The people at Enterprise were a big reason for me wanting to return. Area Manager Dave Murphy stayed in touch with me after I left the business and made me aware that the big green ‘E’ door was always open, should I ever wish to return. This really impressed me. I have never experienced this anywhere else I have worked”.

Since re-joining Enterprise, Katie has brought renewed passion and drive to work. Katie enjoys developing her team and wants to continue training and developing both herself and her staff.

“I’m passionate about Enterprise because I love the people and the direction we are heading as a business. You really do get out what you put in and with the right attitude and work ethic, I hope to do very well.”
