Counteroffer: Just say no! (Infographic)

Top companies don’t make counteroffers, but some 40% of all companies still do. It can be difficult to leave a long-time employer and a strong counteroffer can seem like an excuse to stay. However, the numbers don’t lie. Understand the consequences of the counteroffer and always keep these important statistics in mind.

What really goes through the mind of a boss when someone quits:

“This couldn’t be happening at a worse time.”
“This is one of my best people. If I let him quit now, it’ll wreak havoc on the morale of the department.”
“I’ve already got one opening in my department. I don’t need another right now.”
“This will probably screw up the entire vacation schedule.”
“I’m working as hard as I can, and I don’t need to do his work, too.”
“If I lose another good employee, the company might decide to ‘lose’ me too.”
“My review is coming up and this will make me look bad.”
“Maybe I can keep him on until I find a suitable replacement.”
