I work in middle management for a 15 member team, 12 of whom are inexperienced and in need of training.
The problem is the 3 experienced members were not happy with their compensation, and have been demanding more for quite some time.
Upper management is silent on this issue. I know that the experienced employees are attending interviews outside the company, although they're unaware I know about their job hunting.
I've approached upper management, asking them to revise the experienced employees' compensation, because they are crucial for the project, but my immediate manager doesn't care.
The 12 new members cannot be easily trained if the experienced staff quit. How can I make my manager understand this?
