Would you accept a counter offer? think twice

When you’ve secured a job offer, you may believe your search is over. But you’re not done yet.

After you receive an offer, your employer may make a counteroffer. HR and recruitment experts say that accepting a counteroffer is career suicide, period. But in the last several months, many recruiters have seen an above-average number of counteroffers.

Why is there an increase? Is it still a bad idea to accept a counteroffer? Let’s look at the factors contributing to this trend, and how both candidates and employers can address it.

To start, let’s look at why an individual may be in a position to accept a counteroffer.

Many seek new positions because of frustrations at their current job. And yet, some pursue something new without ever bringing up those frustrations to their supervisor. Some employees don’t have ongoing discussions with their managers to learn where things truly stand. If an employee doesn’t communicate their concerns and frustrations, how could they know if the issues might be resolved?

A frustrated employee may be surprised to learn those issues may be easily solved or mitigated. Bringing up concerns before you seek a new job or accept a new role is a critical step. However, sometimes situations won’t change or leadership is lacking. In today’s struggling job market, some leaders have gotten lazy, and have forgone employee appreciation for the misguided belief that a pay cheque should be enough. In that case, it’s time to look for a new job.

Let’s say that as a job seeker, you’ve been offered another position. How might you respond if your current company makes a counteroffer with more money and flexibility, and more interesting projects? You’d be wise to think twice about your answer.

In some cases, counteroffers can be a wonderful opportunity. Unfortunately, they usually aren’t. Ask yourself, why didn’t your employer offer these incentives before? Why did it take the threat of quitting for leadership to take notice and make a change?

Often, a nervous employer realizes just how much money it would cost to replace you. One must remember, though, that an employer will never forget your desire to leave and the lengths it went to keep you. Trust is hard to gain and easy to lose in such situations. Even if the situation at your current employer changes, statistics say those changes likely will be temporary.

Think twice before accepting a job counteroffer:
