Anuradha has this beautiful take on the issue, presenting both sides with aplomb & accuracy.
As the HR Manager says:
"I wish you wouldnt attribute every resignation in your team to "better salary"
…I wish you wouldnt blame all your problems on inadequate staffing
…I wish your once "perfect candidate" didn't become an "over-rated employee" when he joined competition"
And as the Line Manager says:
"I wish you knew my team well enough to help me with their development plan
I wish you wouldnt tell me "We have chosen to stay out of the salary race"
I wish you would stop scheduling trainings / meetings on month-ends"
