When They Ask for a Raise

Episode Summary

Welcome to the second episode with Scott Tucker!

This time, Scott joins us to chat about a topic that most employers may not be keen to talk about: asking for a raise. Having the market values in mind is always important, even though during the pandemic they have been changing constantly. Scott always rechecks them every few months to see that every employee is having a good number on their paychecks. As a manager, always be open to listening to your employee’s reasons to get a raise; their explanations can show you things you might be missing out on. Employees need to understand how much it costs an employer to have them in the company, and that includes health insurance, retirement, in-office services, and more.

Tune in to this episode and understand the other side of the coin when it comes to raises in a company!
