  Three Reasons You're Earning Less Than What You're Worth
by Tai Goodwin - Dec, 2009
Recently, I began reflecting back to when I began my journey towards earning a 6-figure income in corporate America. I remember spending a lot of time in blame mode. First, I blamed the system for not paying teachers enough. When I left teaching to join the corporate world, I blamed my job for not paying me enough money and my boss for not offering me a raise when I was clearly performing above and beyond expectations. Ch...
  'Fair' Compensation of Employees: A 10-Point Inspection
by Stephanie Thomas, Ph.D. - Dec, 2009
The issue of fairness is a dominant theme in today's employment environment. Employers and employees alike are concerned about equity in all areas of employment, from hiring decisions to promotion opportunities, to compensation and benefits. How does an employer know whether its employes are being 'fairly' compensated? Examining the compensation structure is best done through a comprehensive self-audit. This self-audit is t...
  Wages Linked to Length of Service Discriminatory? An Economic Perspective
by Stephanie Thomas, Ph.D. - Dec, 2009
Is a compensation system that links pay to length of service discriminatory? The UK Court of Appeal thinks so, according to the October 20, 2009 ruling regarding Christine Wilson's allegations. Ms. Wilson, an inspector with the Health and Safety Executive, claimed her pay agreement with the body was unfair because it was linked to length of service. She claimed the agreement was 'prejudiced against females' who broke their...
  How Can I Negotiate a Better Salary Offer?
by John Crant - Dec, 2009
How Can I Negotiate a Better Salary Offer? - Signed I just want what I deserve. We all want what we deserve. Unfortunately, what I call the ‘Unwelcome Truth’ usually gets in the way. The Unwelcome Truth: Companies usually pay based on pay history, and they are not typically basing their offers on what you will bring to the company, or on what you will produce for them. That’s an equation that most individuals who st...
  My Annual Review Is Next Week. How Can I Get Something Else If They Cannot Raise My Salary?
by John Crant - Dec, 2009
Question: My Annual Review is next week. How Can I get Something Else if They cannot Raise My Salary? - Lone-Wolf Standing in My Department Congratulations! That may seem strange given the situation that you are describing of being the ‘last one standing’ in what was formerly a larger department. But, the congratulations are for not letting it stop you, or holding you back from going after SOMETHING during your Annual Re...
  Think Threatening To Leave To Get a Raise is a Good Idea? Think Again.
by Dawn Bugni - Nov, 2009
“I’m underpaid. Should I threaten to leave to see if I can get more money?” This question netted a visceral response from me because of my recruiting background and I don’t like the threat game. Either do it or don’t, but don’t threaten actions to get your way. The list of 10 reasons not to accept counter offers (below) harkens back to my recruiting days. Nothing is worse for a recruiter than a candidate using the recruiter...
  Always Ask For More...Right?
by Harry Urschel - Nov, 2009
When is the right time to start negotiating the amount of an offer? And no matter what it’s always better to ask for more...Isn’t it? One of the most common questions I come across from Job Seekers is how, and when, to negotiate an offer. As part of a Job Networking group, each time we present a topic on “Compensation Strategies” it becomes one of the best attended sessions. There seem to be many misconceptions of t...
  Getting the Best Salary Offer Possible: Seven Simple Tips For Successful Salary Negotiation
by Marshall Brown - Nov, 2009
Negotiating for our own salary is not something that most of us enjoy or, for that matter, want to do. Getting the salary and benefits you desire can be one of the trickiest tasks in the job-hunting process. However, it is a skill that you can learn and practice so that you are able to effectively get the compensation package that you deserve. Whether you are negotiating your compensation with your current employer during a...
