Hiring tip: Don’t negotiate up on salaries, negotiate down

Globally renowned recruitment blog Tutti Recruitti were behind the recent Easter eggposé on FTSE 100 Talent Acquisition Director Jean Paul Coqauvin:

“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket

It is impossible to negotiate down on salary with just one candidate, identify 3 and see who you can get the cheapest.

To keep the process fair and honest you must let the candidates know that 2 others have been identified. The auction can then commence

HR, Legal and myself hold a conference call with the 3 successful candidates. The least suitable and qualified submits their salary bid and we work down from there

Due to low salaries our employees are often poached. However our methods are proven and we just go back to the market and find someone just as cheap”
