In order to retain quality employees, HR offers departments the opportunity to increase the salary of high performing staff members with critical skills whom they anticipate may be at risk of leaving and who have not received an offer from an internal or external employer.
Additionally, counter offers may be considered on an exceptional basis when a written employment offer has been received.
However, it is critical that departments obtain approval prior to making a counter or retention offer to an employee.
To help improve this process, we have updated the Retention Offer Justification Form. They can be found at HR Forms or at the following links:
