Are Counter Offers Counter Productive?

Whether you were caught off guard completely or just finally facing the inevitable, if a strong producing member of your team just gave notice your mind is likely reeling. Before emotions play a role in your response, it’s important to consider the long term effects of producing a counter offer.


 

stockxpertcom_id8988282_size2

More often than not, the employee is not leaving their position strictly based on pay.

Considering that salary doesn’t even make most lists for the top 10 reasons employees quit, it shouldn’t be the first band aid you seek. In fact, in many cases the repercussions of presenting a counter offer can cause further detriment to your team. Here are just a few reasons why:

  • It can demonstrate to employees that they have to threaten to leave in order to be compensated better.
  • Instead of working towards addressing the real issue of why the employee is choosing to leave the organization, you are asking them to instead take a pay increase in lieu of a resolution.
  • The employee may experience rapport loss with co-workers if they become aware of the situation.

Results show that a staggering 90% of employees who accept a counter offer, leave the organization within one year.

Undoubtedly, there is a better solution. Consider a thorough exit interview process. The exit interview process should be far more than having the employee complete a survey. The results should be tracked by department, by category, and a team of leaders should look for common trends and solutions. Using this information wisely can significantly reduce your turnover as an organization.

The Growing Cost of Hiring

Are you still juggling the battle of hiring on your own versus seeking outsourced support? Whether the struggle is based on budgetary confinements, management expectations, or a desire to control the process; there is no better time than now to begin outsourcing your hiring process!

The cost of hiring internally continues to climb annually. Take a peek at the infographic below from The Huffington Post. It is amazing how quickly the cost skyrockets from a few hundred dollars for a job posting to an outside job board to upwards of $18,000! All of these costs can be invested with no guarantee that the employee works out!

The True Cost of Hiring

 

Most staffing and recruiting firms offer a guarantee on their placements and screenings. This protection in addition to the savings of time, resources, and expenditures can quickly justify the investment in outsourcing your hiring process. Established staffing firms only charge a fee if a placement is made, allowing you to view qualified talent before investing anything financially.
