Boomerang Club

The highest of compliment to a company. Relocation of a spouse. Birth of a child. Career redirection. These are all reasons why someone may choose to leave a company. This is common, of course. But what isn't common is for a significant percentage of former employees to return. Trade Press Media Group is proud of its Boomerang Club. At present, nearly 10% of our team members have left for various reasons and later happily returned.
