It’s the moment bosses everywhere dread.
Friday morning, one of your key engineers strolls into the office with some news. They’ve loved their time with your company, they say, but something has come up.
Maybe it’s a new position with another firm. Maybe it’s a backpacking trip throughout Asia. The employee might be pregnant, or going back to school to pursue their true passion – sushi art. The specifics aren’t important.
Whatever the case, they have handed you their notice – two weeks, if you’re lucky. Less if you’re not. Stress will take over your weekend, but you’ll get over it – that’s just part of being the boss. More pressing than your weekend plans is the implication this might have on an upcoming, or ongoing, project.
You were counting on this engineer to play a vital role in your company, but now it seems as through you are left with nothing.
Engineering staffing firms help small and mid-sized businesses deal with unexpected employee turnover on a daily basis.

We know what you’re thinking. None of this applies to you. With an office ping pong table, great benefits and happy hour Friday’s, employees would have to be crazy to leave your company, right?

You know the sinking feeling you get when you step into the office on Monday during flu season and see multiple empty desks? Multiply that by a hundred and you still can’t comprehend losing an engineer before a project starts.
