3 Ways To Get Your Boss To Say Yes To A Pay Rise
Climbing the career ladder is not easy, and getting the salary you deserve will involve asking difficult questions, that none of us likes. Asking for more money can get us a bit squeamish at times, however, we have some tips that will help you get through it successfully.
Here are Kelly’s three key recommendations to help you negotiate your next pay rise no matter what your role is.
1. Firstly, you should know what you are asking for. Always have a clear idea of what you want and try to avoid asking for ‘some’ more money or perks.
2. Secondly, showcase your accomplishments. Your boss needs to know why you deserve a pay rise, therefore you need to put together all your achievements, especially the ones beyond your usual responsibilities.
Finally, always be respectful. It is another business meeting that will require some negotiation and keeping emotions under control.
3. Having said that, our salary also depends on the economy and current market conditions. 2017 saw the Irish economy grow three times faster than any other European country, with Pharma being one of the fastest growing sectors. However, Ireland is still short of skilled workers, especially engineers. Therefore, demand for biomedical engineers, chemical engineers, electrical engineers or energy engineers is rising, and so is the salary.
Asking for a pay rise can be scary even if you prepare for it well ahead. Keep our key points in mind, and above all, make sure you know what you are worth to the employer. If your boss says no then Kelly is always here to support you in your job search https://jobs.kellyservices.ie
