What is the best way to negotiate a Counter Offer being a Recruiter?
Companies are always keen to hold onto their top employees, so don’t be surprised if your resignation is followed by a counteroffer.
It can be flattering to know your employer values you so highly, and among high calibre professionals it is quite common for employers to entice staff to stay on. But there are compelling arguments as to why you should continue with your plans to resign and explore new job opportunities.
So while a counteroffer may be gratifying, it rarely addresses the factors behind your resignation, and there are good reasons why you should never accept a counteroffer.
- A counteroffer doesn’t solve underlying issue
- Your loyalty will be questioned
- A counteroffer may just be a cost-saving measure
- A salary rise can be too little, too late
- Don’t be burdened by ‘what-ifs’
