The More Things Change …

The More Things Change …

Everyone knows that change will happen. I guess we just need to remember that, so we won’t be so shocked and upset when it happens.

It seems that everyone wants “things to change” at work. Many are all too happy to complain about issues, management, or projects assigned to them. Yet, once “change” is announced fear is the first reaction.

Can Benefits Help Offset Slow Wage Growth?

Can Benefits Help Offset Slow Wage Growth?

Even if your company is in the middle of a salary freeze - as many companies are today -there may be a way to increase your “compensation”. For more than a decade, wage growth in the U.S. has been virtually non-existent according to the Economic Policy Institute. The most recent survey by the National Federation of Independent Businesses shows that 2015 may be the year when wage increases could approach three percent. However, even at that level many employees are feeling as though they are running in sand rather than getting ahead.

The Cost of an Open Tech Position

The Cost of an Open Tech Position

As the battle for quality IT talent rages on, many organizations find themselves with open tech positions. Often, managers concentrating on making the perfect hire delay the hiring process. As a result, organizations have to get by with their under-staffed team. Open positions weigh upon on the staff as well as departmental output, and are only a portion of the many ‘costs’ incurred by having open tech roles.

Managing Salary Expectations

Managing Salary Expectations

Whether you are negotiating with a new employee or conducting an annual review with someone already on your staff, sooner or later the conversation turns to money. According to a Salary.com survey of 13,500 random visitors, 65% of respondents said they are looking for a new job within the next three months. Of those, 57% say they are looking because they believe they are underpaid. Even more interesting is that when compared with the firm’s market data on similar positions, only 19% of the group is actually underpaid; 17% appear to be overpaid, and 34% are fairly compensated. In other words, perception and expectations about salary compensation are not always accurate.
