The head of the company usually negotiates his salary when he joined, provided that a change in their responsibilities or important circumstances of the business, or annually, ie, within the normal revisions. His salary is based on the results of the company and the salary structure of the company if it is a large multinational. But in general, top managers do not “ask for salary increase” in its most literal sense.
In the case of other officers of the company means there may be circumstances in which the level of responsibility and professionalism have become irrelevant in relation to the market, this may lead to talk with the boss to request a review. In this line are our recommendations.
First, you must take into account the budgetary cycle of the company, and when they become accustomed to consider the salary revisions. This is important because if the head has not budgeted for an increase, can be very complicated, although it considers fair, getting a review.
In other circumstances, when a request is the same increase that has been promoted, have increased your responsibilities, you have had a major success, or have made extraordinary contributions and objectively recognized.
Please note the company’s culture, is something that all professional, and in addition, all managers should know. That means knowing the internal processes and ways of communication: to whom, when and how in general it is better to speak openly face to face with the boss, and request an interview with him specifying the reason for the demand.
Among the arguments put forward, in addition to those already mentioned, would include a contribution to your company, your degree of integration into the organization, the economic progress of the business, and politics and wage structure in comparison with other professionals have similar levels of responsibility.
A good exercise might be to write a note on the reasons, contributions and intentions, before having an interview with the head: used to clarify ideas, be able to order and not to forget any important point. As to note that this is a script for an interview or a written memorandum, will depend on the company’s culture, but in general it is more convenient to do so face to face in a normal conversation between professionals.
Finally, assess the level of economic ascent is complicated because the pay is usually based on the input and the level of responsibility of the person and therefore is a very relative value.
Threatening to exit the company to go to another counter and play with the decision to leave a company for economic reasons, which may be valid at a given time, should not lead to ever play the counteroffer.
