Get to the root cause

The best way to find out why someone wants a raise is to ask them.

Questions that can help to uncover the issue.

  • What's your least favourite part about your job?
  • What's one thing we could do to improve how our team works?
  • How do you experience your workload? Do you feel overworked or underworked?

Ensure that you are actively listening. Rephrase the message to confirm you understand it.

When someone on your team asks for a raise (assuming they're deserving), but you don't have the budget to increase their pay, can you give someone a promotion to keep up their morale?

You may be unable to increase their financial compensation, but you can instead focus on providing them with career growth. Studies show that growth is a significant perk people want at work, even more than money.

If you are transparent about your company's financial situation, when raises are considered, and your limitations, your employee looking for a raise will be more willing to wait.
