    Just half of the salary hike being given than what was promised

    I am working in a private firm. Just 2 months ago my manager promised to give me a certain percentage of salary hike after 2 months. But now they are only giving me half of the salary hike as promised earlier. Even my manager is not ready to listen to me.How to deal with such a situation?

    Dear Aspirant,

    Being a private company, it has to manage all the expenses which includes establishment expenses, production
    expenses, expansion expenses etc from its own resources. The market is not constant ever for a product of a particular company. In such a case, the expected returns of money does not come to the company.

    Since you have got salary hike just fifty percent of the promised percentage, it means the company may be facing financial crisis. Also, you might have been promised orally which does not stand. Now, since your management is not listening to you, you are left with two options either to continue in the same job or to search for another good job. It would be better to work here well till you get another good job.

    Have patience and deal with the situation peacefully because life of human beings is a zig-zag path.

    Thanks and Good luck

    Hi aspirant

    You should certainly speak to your manager regarding this and get this matter solved as soon as possible. He should better realise that he should keep his promise with the employees and not break it in such a way. He should better not misuse his power in such a way and should understand his responsibilities towards the employees. You should try and talk to him again and make sure that he listens to you this time.

    Tell him that he had promised you 2 months ago to give you a certain percentage of salary hike but now when you have got your hike it is just half of what he had promised earlier. You are very dejected and want to know the reason for the same. You have tried to ask him many times before but without any response from his side. You hope that he will do justice with you otherwise you may have to take this matter to the higher authorities.

    I hope that you manager realises his mistake and thus give you the salary hike as promised. Otherwise you must go to the higher ups. Good luck and thanks

    Dear this always happens in private sector jobs and most of the companies are here only to earn the profit from the pockets of the employees but you should not take it negative because this may be a problem for your company related to finance and may be that there is an issue in your previous performance that is why your manager provided you half of the promised percentage and if you want to earn complete promised then you should work hard in the company and show your efficiency of working well and providing profit to the company and when your manager will see your work then he will give you hikes in the salary and will also give some incentives and if you think that you should get the chance to talk to your manager then you should take any hard responsibility and try to complete that work before the time and when you submit your work then you should ask for hikes in the salary from the manager and this will be the right time for you to ask about the hikes and your manager will provide you something more

    All the best
