Beware the Counter-Offer

In the current highly competitive, candidate driven job market, employers should be aware of potential counter-offers. Whilst you can’t completely avoid counter-offers, you can take steps to reduce the likelihood of your chosen candidates accepting a counter-offer instead of your role.

Counter OfferTheo Jones Recruitment advises:

  • Make sure you know the salary expectations of potential candidates at the very early stages in a recruitment process
  • Be aware that many candidates are just not aware of their current value until they put themselves on the job market. Their salary expectations may well  increase during the recruitment process.
  • Don’t expect to be able to replace a key role at the same salary as the out-going role holder.
  • Work with an industry expert recruitment consultant and ask their advice on salary & package.
