Navigating Employee Salary Negotiations – Tools For Employers & HR To Manage Conflict & Boost Retention

Webinar Background :

Talking about salaries and compensation can be an emotionally charged discussion. It can be tense even when you are offering salary increases. When expectations are not met there can be misunderstanding, conflict, ill feelings, and anger. These compensation conversations are directly connected to performance and performance comparisons which almost guarantee that your employees have some critical questions on their minds like - Will I be getting a raise? How much will it be? Is there a promotion or transfer in my future? Am I being paid appropriately for my skills and efforts? Many employees equate self-worth with compensation. Unfortunately, the best employees in the company are the ones that tend to become the most disillusioned and disengaged if pay expectations and pay reality are not aligned. 
The compensation conversation in today’s environment of transparency has never been more challenging and crucial to keep your workforce satisfied.
