I have something that hurts me so much it is reducing my working efficiency.
My boss promised me to raise my salary since December last year due to my work ability and because I have acquired new job responsibilities. In March this year I wrote a letter to him concerning this issue and he told me he can’t give me a raise because the company has no money.
Last month he added another responsibility and escaped discussing salary with me.
I explained all this issue to the human resources manager and he says he has nothing to do with it.
With all this situation my boss still hires new employees, introduces new expensive software, the worst thing that pains me is he raise others salary.
Please tutor help me I don’t know what to do. Sometimes I think to quit a job.
Maybe you should quit, because it seems like your manager is taking you for granted.
The HR manager should have something to do with it, it is part of his brief to deal with problems like this. However, if he won’t get involved I would concentrate on your manager.
I suggest you have another conversation with him about your salary, in the light of the extra new responsibility. Remind him of his promise, and perhaps you can persuade him to give you an increase.
If he doesn’t, take a serious look at the job market and decide if you will be able to find new work. Perhaps even apply for jobs. If you get an offer, then you are in a strong negotiating position with your manager.
Then carefully plan a meeting with your manager. Gather information to support your case. Collate records, job descriptions, salaries, list new hirings and new software.
Then ask for a meeting with your manager, lay out your evidence, tell him how you feel, and listen to what he says. Then make your decision.
Don’t resign on the spot, wait till you have a new job offer before you do that.
