When you think you should charge more and you don't know how to ask for a raise
They say that money does not bring happiness but it certainly helps to achieve it.
Perhaps the salary is not everything in a job, in fact, there are factors that influence more when assessing a company as satisfactory from the point of view of the worker, including the possibility of reconciling work and family life, the good treatment between colleagues and with superiors, the prospects for promotion, the possibility of participation in business decisions ... However, the general trend is that if the salary is low, dissatisfaction is almost guaranteed, since it acts as a trigger for the general malaise of workers and rarefied labor relations.
In fact, those who do not make ends meet, despite working full-time, often resort to applying for loans to be able to alleviate daily expenses, a situation that becomes even more irritating.
According to a report released by Adecco and Infoempleo in 2016, 72.3% of Spanish workers consider that they earn less than they deserve. In fact, in said report it was clear that 51.1% of the companies surveyed acknowledged having frozen salaries and 22.7%, having reduced them. 58.1% indicated that they had hired workers with worse salary conditions than those of the personnel already working.
Normally, the situation becomes especially thorny when the employee verifies that the company in question has closed a record year in benefits, when he realizes that other colleagues in similar positions earn more or when his responsibilities and workload increase but not the salary .
The direct consequence of this continued situation over time is boredom , loss of energy, enthusiasm and the desire to perform or get involved in the company, the feeling of giving everything for nothing and, even worse, in extreme cases , the irruption in our day to day of a feeling of humiliation at the thought that the company is laughing at us or, at least, openly undervalues us.
And it is that, the relationship between company and employee must be reciprocal so that both parties are at ease and can demand, both from one party and the other, a greater effort.
The main drawback is that the majority of workers are terrified when asking for a salary increase, they do not know how to raise the issue, how to assert or argue their claim; However, from CréditoSí we encourage you to show your chest and ask for the right thing, as long as you are absolutely certain that you are asking for something possible for the company and reasonable for you and your colleagues.
While you prepare your strategy and arm yourself with moral strength, you can apply for a microcredit with us to face those dreaded inopportune expenses that your small payroll does not allow you to address.
