The majority of offers are extended and accepted without a great deal of complication; unfortunately there will be situations where you will need to rescind an offer. Just as a good hire can boost the bottom line so can a bad hire drain financial pools and wear down team morale. Avoid a potential last minute bad hire by rescinding an offer. Following are some reasons why you should rescind an offer.

It is always exciting when it comes time to extend an offer.  All your hard work is hopefully about to pay off.  By the time you are about to extend the offer you should have gathered enough information from the candidate to know their current salary and what salary they are seeking. At hand is your salary range and what you can extend to the candidate beyond base compensation.   Keep in mind that bonuses and commissions are potential and not guaranteed income.

Options give us power, especially if those options are viable.  Have other companies where you feel you can get an offer.  If you are an internal candidate have other departments you can apply to. In an ideal situation you will have other contacts or position openings you can refer to in case the position you are negotiating an offer for falls through.  The best way to have other options available is to constantly be building a network of positions and companies that you can reach out to when you are ready to make your best move.
