As we were packing up and leaving our office for the day, my employee gave me the bad news. He said that he has a job offer and he is very likely to accept it! I could not help but show my disappointment. I wish I was cool about it. It was my body language that gave so much away.
He joined me as an intern without any office experience. I trained him to the extent he has now become a sought after employee.
He told me the salary he is offered. It is excellent. I will give it further thought, but it is unlikely I will be able to match the offer.
I was thinking finally we are settling down. My employee took over most of the day to day from me, leaving me the space on business building activities. Will it now be me doing the day to day? I wonder if I will be able to?
May be I should take on another intern and start all again? I do enjoy training ACCA finalists. This will distract me from business building activities.
I will speak to my mentee and look into what sort of package she is looking for, If within my budget, she would be a suitable replacement.
I do not need all this. I will give it some thought and get further details of my employee’s package tomorrow. May be come up with something?
