Seeing the results of our labor is a big part of being satisfied at work. We want to feel appreciated for our efforts since we spend the majority of our week at work serving others.
A pay increase is one way many workers prefer to be recognized for their efforts. Have you ever heard of the saying, “Closed mouths don’t get fed?” We definitely won’t get what we don’t ask for. It can be difficult asking for a raise, and preparing for that conversation can be nerve-wracking.
