Salary negotiations
Gehaltsverhandlungen führen

Raising the subject

This is not a subject that often naturally comes up for discussion, although your company may well have a set time for salary negotiations with employees: after an annual appraisal is a popular time for such discussions.

If exceptional circumstances make you sure that an additional discussion is called for then you can try to broach the subject. But remember, your boss may not relish such a talk, so present it as an opportunity to find a win-win solution, remain flexible, and make it easy for him or her to agree to the meeting:

  • I wondered whether we might be able to find a time to sit down and discuss my pay package next week? (You have even suggested a time for the meeting, making it easier for your boss to agree.)
  • Now that Project X has been completed, can we meet to discuss prospects over the coming year? (You have reminded your boss about a recent successful event ? Project X ? to encourage positive views of your work.)
  • Can we have a review meeting to look at my position and remuneration for the coming year, I?d really appreciate sitting down with you to discuss what I can do to optimise my work. (You are making it sound like a very positive and attractive proposition to your boss?s advantage.)
  • I´d like to know how you see my role developing over the next year and make sure that we are on the same page, so can we meet and go over all the details of my job description and package? (You are asking for help from your boss to improve your understanding of your work, as well as discuss your pay package.)
