Talent Retention Challenge - What went wrong when your star new hire went back to previous organization?
If you have been involved in hiring an employee for a critical position, either as HR or as the hiring manager, you might have faced this situation -
1) you find a star performer who fits the role perfectly,
2) you go all out & ensure that this person is hired & joins your organization
3) this person joins and gets to a great start
4) and before you know it, this person quits & goes back to where she/he came from : the previous employer !!
What a waste of time, energy, effort & money and the cost of lost opportunities due to delay in filling up the position.
So what went wrong?
