The Value Of Work Alumni

Wise organizations keep track of their alumni: those who have moved onto other jobs and retired. They keep track of them through reunions and social media like LinkedIn. When they have unplanned vacancies and need for project and temporary help, they reach out to this network of people who already know the organization and often have the kinds of good will and social connections to do better than burdening existing people or bringing other unfamiliar people. It's smart and not that complicated.
