With a growing trend of big companies letting go of staff it’s only a matter of time until the mid-sized and smaller companies start following suit.
How do you end up being one of the ones that stays? Better still, how you can you get a raise during a time of mass layoffs?
Raise The Quality Of Your Output. Perform in excellence and go above and beyond in delivering what is expected of you -whether to your bosses, colleagues or customers.
Be A Great Problem-Solver. Businesses make money by solving problems. If you can put out fires and find solutions better than anyone else in your area of expertise, you become valuable to your employee.
Innovate. Offer ways to improve upon existing products or services or come up with an entirely new one that is a profit generator. If leaders see you are helping the organization’s bottom line instead of perceiving you as a liability, your worth to them increases and they’ll be more open to your requests for a raise.
The bottom line is that companies invest in people that are performing at a higher level than the average employee. The solution is Become The Elite Performer In Your Organization.
