Dear Raghav

Ex-Employers, Ex-Employees both from Employees and Business owners point of view ?.

Prashant S Akerkar

Dear Prashant,

This is indeed a very intelligent question i must admit.

It is always a good idea to keep in constant touch with your past colleagues.  This will help you in multiple ways - of keeping a tab on whats going on and exploring if you can get back if there is scope for the same.

From employers / business owners / HR perspective, it would be prudent to hire back the employees whom they know pretty well and have worked with them before.  This will help them in quick decisions as they are already aware of your strengths and weaknesses.

Hope to have clarified your Q.
