Dear Folks
I have a situation, for which i need inputs from you.
I have 6 years of HR(Generalist-Manager) experience. Recently i joined a company 4 months back, last week I have resigned showing health related issue - that i need rest for 3 months. however the issue is something personal that I faced in the company(Management is aware of this - open secret).
Now they want to give me option for next two/ three months to work from home and re-join the company, Its a startup.
Given this situation, I am in complete clueless. If i consider this employment again what could be the long run complexities and is it a correct decision to re-join, as the issue is resolved and I dont have issues joining back. but will me going back to same company after giving resignation will degrade my profile or reflect my in-balance in decision making? and what could be consequences I am going to face (or) terms company and me have to be clear before re-joining.

Ashwin I blve if issue is resolved and u are called by the Co. its means you have good reputation in the Co. and for Co. also it would have not been easy decision to take you back as you left the co.
So I think (only if you are comfortable ) you may join Co again as only after they recognized your value they called you.

i did not understand whether its the same company (6 yrs exp) or new co (4mon exp) thats calling u back.
Anyways i believe going back to any company would of course raise questions on some decision taking of yours., but the counter is that u stoodby your decision and do the right thing. Rather than fearing the decision, one must take the decision and abide by it. Besides u must have left the old co with some motive and new co will give more opportunites since startup, hence new co maybe better.

Ankur he is called by the Co where he has worked 4 months and then resigned in last week only. He has got option to work from home. Now plz suggest...

ok, so work from home, and then rejoin the company. (u can even rejoin earlier also and say that your health has become better in 1 or 2 months).
Also new co is startup, hence make yourself sure that they are not taking some breathing time to replacing you (in the time that you are at home). Startups sometimes also have difficulties filling up various positions.

Hi Ravitashukla
Thanks for sharing your thoughts, you are right its the co whr I worked for 4 months this happened.
Hi Ankurj
I agree with all the things you discussed and suggested. But will me going back reflect (or in future) among other employees that I left and finally came back to same company as there is no other option at hand? coz my team members are aware that i resigned. I am really interested to go back as you said there is lots of scope to learn and perform many (almost all) activities of HR Generalist(from Admin -HR Managerial - Financial).

it does not matter what other employees think. Many people do that (go back to the old company) , and i have seen employees feel good that person came back becoz they realize that something good is there with the company thats why this person has come back. So they feel nice that they are working for a good company if not the best. Besides even u want to go back, so so thats even more imp.

Dear Alwin,
It is clear when you are not happy with the company within 4 months what you are going to do if you continue in that organisation.
Moreover mostly when a person who resigns and rejoins(withdraw resignation) will not stick to the company for more than 1 yr.
As you said the problem is solved you want to re-joins., if you face problem in future again you resign for that.
As a HR guy when you want to resign for a problem think of the employees in your organisation and how can you retain them when they resign.
As a start-up company it will be not professional, Senior employees will not be ready to change, Some organisation family members intervention will be there, No hierarchy will be followed, etc. So you have to accept this and re-join there.

mr. k_shenbagarajan
you said that
"Moreover mostly when a person who resigns and rejoins(withdraw resignation) will not stick to the company for more than 1 yr"
that is like ur past exp u putting here, and hence the statement is generalized. You cannot generalize. Nobody can be sure whether that time frame is 1 yr or 5 yr or 40 yrs. Even alwin cannot be sure of this. Circumstances change daily.
As far the next line you wrote it is correct, that u can resign again.
Your last line says co will not be professional and other things, however they are all general statements, cannot be told of that of any particular co. Besides there is no proof of those statements. Those things may or may not happen.

Dear Ankur,
Thanks for your suggestion.
The National Employment Association claims that over 75% of employees that accept counteroffers(retained) are no longer with that company six months later, either through voluntarily leaving or dismissal.
As a start- up company it does not have a process, policy or procedure so how do you think it will be professional, hierarchy followed, change cannot be done. It is not general statement. I has personally experienced and also heard from many employees who i had interviewed said the factors which i had mentioned.
People can leave the organisation and rejoin later in a higher designation but the person who resigns and rejoins in the same designation will not sustain.
