A question we often get asked on LinkedIn, in discussion forums, or by people in general is: “I have just made an offer to a new senior hire. She has accepted and is about to resign from her current position. Is there anything more that I can do?” Absolutely there is… and here's our answer. The job is actually far from done in that you now have TWO potential areas of risk to manage and minimize:
The Resignation Period
The Induction Period
If your candidate is as good as you think, then their current company is not going to want to lose them and as such, will do everything to keep them! If they are successful, it means you will have wasted a lot of time, effort, and money. As well, you are losing all the exceptional skills, knowledge, and experience that hiring a Senior Finance professional would have brought to your business and given you a competitive edge. The thing is, there is something you can do about it. To learn how you can avoid damaging mistakes that could cost you your new hires, get in touch to arrange a quick chat.
