How to ask for a raise in 2023
Remember that you are entitled to ask for fair compensation for your work.
Art Stuff 22 Feb 2023

Asking for a raise can be scary, especially in 2023 with news of a recession, the cost of living rising, and company layoffs looming under the surface. But it’s important to remember that you are entitled to ask for fair compensation for your work.

Here are 5 tips to help:

Do your research
Before asking for a raise, it’s essential to understand your market value well. You can research salary data for your position and industry in places like Glassdoor to understand what others in similar roles are making. This will help you make a case for why you deserve a raise.

Schedule a meeting with your manager
Choose a time when you know your manager will be in a good mood and with time to spare. So, not before their morning coffee, not under a tight deadline or otherwise occupied. Let them know in advance what you would like to discuss in the meeting so they are also prepared.

Prepare your argument
Think about what you want to say in advance. Prepare and bring in notes if that will help. For your negotiating strategy think about your contributions to the company, your accomplishments and goals, and how a raise would benefit both you and your employer. Be sure to align your argument with the company’s goals and objectives.

Be open to negotiation
Be prepared to hear that your manager may not be able to grant your exact request. Use this time to negotiate other benefits, such as flexi-work or professional development opportunities.

Be professional + confident
Remember to stay calm and professional during the meeting, even if your manager is not agreeing with your reasons for the raise. Show appreciation for your manager’s time and thank them for their consideration. If you do not get the raise, ask for feedback and learn from the experience for next time.

Good Luck!
