I read a relatively interesting article this morning about counter offers. *Cue your round of applause.* In addition, at some point I may explain why Paul Hollywood is the picture header of this article.
Now I am sure everyone has read the statistics that do the rounds on LinkedIn bi-weekly (80% of people leave within 6 months of a counter offer, etc etc etc). However, it was good to read an article where the writer had experienced a counter offer, rightfully rejected it, and then articulated the reasons for not accepting it.
Now as an overview, said article's author wrote about asking for a pay rise after discovering they were underpaid in comparison to their colleagues, despite performing better then them. Upon asking for a pay rise, they were met with the above and (not as bluntly) was rejected. Feeling rightfully annoyed (, they decided to approach one of the businesses competitors, go through the motions and ultimately get offered a higher paying role.
GUESS WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THEY HANDED THEIR NOTICE IN? . 'You are a valued member of staff we cannot lose you'. 'I still love you I can change'.
This is where the author pointed out the clear lack of respect that he had already received, and , turned it down.
