Tip 1: How to ask for money
Employee motivation is very important for business success. This should be understood by every competent leader. It is necessary to raise salaries or pay bonuses at least once a year, otherwise you risk losing a valuable employee, which means there is a direct risk of losses. If, for some reason, the authorities do not even think about a salary increase, then there is nothing wrong with asking for an increase. This process requires caution and delicacy, so you need to practice beforehand.
The most important thing is that you have to be sure that you really deserve a raise. And the reason is not “Ivanov was added, but why not me?”, But the fact that you actually bring tangible benefits to the company and deserve a reward. If for yourself you honestly answered the question: “Am I worth the increase?” In the affirmative, you need to be brave and go to the boss. Prepare in advance. Collect your work reports for the last year. Show what profit you brought the company. If possible, demonstrate the growth of the company's gross income with a chart or graph. If you have had successfully completed business projects during this period, then mention them as well.
Think in advance about what percentage of the increase you will ask. In no case do not mention the wages of other employees, do not ask to level you "with Petrov, because you work even longer than he." How much you work in a firm does not matter at all. The main thing - the result of your work. And if you can convince the management that you are a valuable employee, then it is likely to meet you. Of course, choose the time for such a conversation, too, need to carefully. The boss should not be busy, he should not be in a bad mood, and an important meeting should not loom on his nose.
