I am managing a team and I have a new member in my team. She has been with us less than a year. Policy in the company doesn't allow raises before finishing the first year of employment. I told her that I appreciate her work and that she was up to my expectations and she was the output of more than 50 interviews for this position, I think this made her conceited a little bit. She submitted her resignation telling me that she is not happy with her salary trying to get a counter offer! From a management perspective, what would you suggest? given that:
- She is a good and qualified member and don't like to lose her and enter the search for another candidate once again.
- We are paying her better than what the market is paying in general (so we are above the average in paying in the market for her position)
- I don't like to have this as a trend or behavior in my team because whatever I pay you, you would like to have more! this is the nature of human.
So, if you were in my place what would you do? or what you suggest me to do in such case
