The article reports on the use of a corporate social networking site by international law firm Allen & Overy to rehire its former employees. The company hopes the site, which has attracted 1,900 alumni registrations, will boost the number of boomerang hires, workers who leave their job to join another firm but then wish to return. The site, provided by web firm SelectMinds, is a password-protected platform where employees and alumni can keep in touch, post messages and photographs and organise social outings.
