Hard Hiring Decision !! Anybody can help ?!
September 30, 2010 22 Comments
I’ve been asked by one of our clients about a hiring decision for a new Sales Manager for his company , and I couldn’t answer him !! and I would really appreciate if you can share your opinion with me that will help me to have a decision.
The Company have a Sales Manager for its first Show Room with from 10 years with a salary of 1000 KD.
They want to hire a Sales Manager for the second showroom , and after interviewing several candidates they found an excellent Sales Manager the match with the job profile and requirements , but he is asking for 1500 KD “ Non negotiable + benefits”
The question is :
Shall the company hire that Manager ? and if yes , how they will deal with the other Sales Manager specially he is working in the company since 10 years and achieving his target ?!!
The Operations opinion is to hire him as long as he is achiever and he is fitting to the job , while HR opinion to DO NOT hire him since it will be against the salary scale policy , and will effect the moral for the existing sales Manager , and will give negative image about the company between the employee!!
What is your opinion ? And why ? And If there is a solution for this case?
