What to Do When Your Star Employees Quit

So your trusted ace is headed for greener pastures. How do you react? Hank Gilman writes that the best attitude to have when your employees leave is to start figuring out how to recruit them again. Do not badmouth the person’s new employer, because it only makes you look insensitive. Develop a counteroffer if you can tell your employee is really hoping for one; sometimes a little more money is all it takes to keep your employee around. Remember not to be a hypocrite, since you yourself have probably hopped between a few jobs, and there really should be no hard feelings when someone leaves. And of course, keep in touch. Whether or not they come back to work for you, those people can still prove to be useful new contacts in future endeavors.
