The Alaant Advisor is our column focused on all things going on in the world of recruiting, job placement, and search. Think of it as your weekly briefing—a handy, quick guide to what's going on.

Here's what's happening this week:

Last Week’s QOTW Poll Results:

Q: If you’ve ever accepted a counteroffer, how long after did you stay at that job?

  • 3 months - 35%
  • 6 months - 10%
  • 9 months - 3%
  • More than 1 year - 52%

While it may be flattering to receive a counteroffer, it's essential to deliberate on why you considered leaving in the first place. Counteroffers often serve as temporary solutions that do not address the underlying reasons for an employee's initial desire to leave, such as workplace culture or leadership challenges.

Interestingly, while over half of the respondents remained for more than a year, this does not negate the importance of assessing a counteroffer critically. Remember, a salary increase, or a new title may provide short-term satisfaction, but they are unlikely to resolve deep-rooted issues.

Before making a decision, we encourage you to reflect on the counteroffer - is it a band-aid solution, or does it offer a meaningful path forward in your career?
