Make Counter Offers - Recruiter tips

Source: eGrabber Newsletters

Since employees are likely to hop jobs, it is important to take adequate steps to prevent it. Considering counter offers is one way to handle this.

Ensure always that your counter offer addresses and benefits the employee’s career development. Never make a counter offer solely for the company’s benefit. Selfish counter offers will only delay an employee’s decision to leave.

If you cannot make a counter offer to match the other company’s offer, be creative in structuring the offer and include benefits that surprise the employee.
