After a tedious year of mainly working from home, almost everyone can use a storage. Yet it appears that especially women do not really feel this need. This while a significant proportion of employers are open to negotiations. Subway list a number of tips for a successful salary negotiation.
Only 20 percent of women plan to enter into negotiations with their boss about the salary this year. This is shown by research by job site Indeed among more than 1200 employees and more than 250 employers. This part is especially modest compared to men. The same survey shows that one in three men intends to request a storage call.
On the other hand, it appears that in many cases the employer is open to salary negotiations. A quarter of the employers surveyed indicate that a mark-up for employees is in line with expectations. So even now there is room to negotiate. But the question remains how best to approach such a salary negotiation.
Preparation is half the battle
Good preparation is, as is often the case, ‘half the battle’. For example, it is important to find out in advance what you want to earn and whether that is also reasonable. You have to ask yourself in advance why you deserve that raise. It is therefore also important to take into account the situation in which the employer finds itself. If the employer is in difficult waters, it is better to postpone the conversation for a while.
In addition, it is also important to include fringe benefits in the conversation. In addition to salary, bonuses and a company car can also be important to consider. It is best to test all this preparation again on a friend. That way you are also better prepared for difficult questions or unexpected turns in the storage conversation.
The right timing
In addition to good preparation, choosing the right time to have this conversation with your boss can also be a key to success. The optimal time to do this is often early afternoon in the second half of the week. So for example Thursday afternoon at 1.30 pm. Your boss has probably already completed the most important activities and has had time to prepare for the interview. It is useful to keep in mind that the timing also depends on the type of work you do.
You can also base the timing on milestones you have achieved. For example, it can help to grab an anniversary, for example, to start a conversation. But you can also use successes in which you played a role as a basis for the conversation. In this way you give yourself and your employer a more positive feeling about a possible increase.
Quiting is not an option
If things don’t go the way you had hoped, then there is still no need for the man. Make sure you know why it was not there this time and get to work. If you then make sure that your preparation and timing is even better, you might end up lucky next time.
