Is it ok to let go of a great employee?

By Ronan on March 10, 2016 in newsletter

Candidates leave their current employment for a number of reasons with many employers thinking, if only they had paid them more money.

Losing a good member of staff can be taken as both a personal and corporate insult, but try not to think of it like that, and learn from the experience as most reasons why employees quit their jobs are within the control of the employer.

The majority of people leave their job because of their supervisor or team leader.  Communication is key to keeping staff happy and workplace relationships are incredibly important, especially in today’s society where we spend so much time in the workplace.

Other reasons include boredom or lack of a challenge in their role, visibility (or lack of) of a path of continued growth and promotion, organisation’s financial instability, no recognition of employee job performance, and a dislike of a company’s corporate culture.

However it is sometimes best to let the employee go on good terms.  A counter offer is often only a short term fix for the client and the candidate and from our experience 90% of the time it results in the employee in question leaving within 6 months for the same reasons they had initially stated.
