    One of the nurses in our hospital is asking for too much increase in salary due to her being highly experienced

    I am the owner of a private hospital. We have just started and are relatively new. So we donít have enough funds to pay our employees handsomely as of now. But one of the nurses, who is the best here, inspite of knowing this, is demanding an exorbitant increase in salary as she is highly experienced. What to do in such a situation as we donít want to lose her?

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is true to say that being new in a business,you may have to face many problems.But the employee has nothing to do with it.Since the concerned nurse is the most experience,she may naturally demand high hike in salary.Also since you don't want to loose her,so you should give her interim relief of increase in salary.You should increase at the rate of Rs.500 or 1000 per month & assure her of giving her still higher salary as soon as the financial constraints go off.She may be agree for the same.You can assure her to give next hike in salary after a year.Till that you should try from now on wards to improve the financial position of the hospital.You should check income & expenditure daily,monthly so that you can control your unnecessary expenditure & increase source of income.

    Try your level best to improve it.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Hello Friend,

    Well, if you want to hire the best and experience professional then you have to pay her good amount of money otherwise you will not be able to keep her from your hospital. In heathcare service people look for the best and the experience professional rather than inexperienced one. You should talk to her and try to explain her the present situation. but i don't think you will be able to keep her as there will be many lucrative offers for her in other hospitals. You have to make arrange extra fund so that you can keep her in your hospital othrwise just let her decide what to do in a situation like this.

    Bye,

    Hello ..,

    In such a situation you should talk to the nurse directly that at the present moment raising salary to the demanded value is really very difficult. Now see why you want her to keep working in your hospital is just because she is highly experienced. This can be of great profit to your newly established hospital. If she succeeds in making your hospital more famous and trustworthy to patients and the people, then she deserves a nice salary. And if this happens then obviously the hospital will become self sufficient to pay her.
    If possible you try to raise the salary by some amount because if she is good, others will also learn from her and so popularity will follow. Promise her that if the hospital gets more popular , she will surely get her demanded value.
    If she cannot manage to do her work then there is no need of raising the salary.

    Thank You.

    sir,
    If you don't want to lose her then you have to solve this problem by talking with her.As you have mentioned that your hospital is new one,you can't effort to give a handsome salary.so,tell this to her as she is experienced nurse she should be given salary higher than the remaining nurses.Tell her about the situations you are facing and also tell that you will pay a handsome salary soon......
    all the best
    thank you

    Hi,
    Every employee want good hike in salary its human nature,but as you mention that she is high experience and well knowing employee then in this case she definitely deserve this. But as you open relatively new hospital its quite difficult to pay more, so just do 1 thing:
    1. Give her a final hike from your side(which you can best give) and directly say her that right now he can only provide this hike because we just recently open.
    So if she is ok with given hike then she will surely continue, otherwise its her choice. You have no option just hire new good employee in your budget.

    You are the owner of a private hospital ,and started this Hospital newly.One of your Hospital nurse is experienced ,due to her expertise in the field she is demanding exorbitant hike in salary.you have no enough fund to pay your employees handsomely as of now.Under the situation you do not want to lose the experienced nurse.

    Under this circumstances you are to increase her salary because she is experienced enough,if you fail to filfill her demand then you are to lose her, she is capable to manage another job at once by her expertise.Then you can go for a negotiation, we will increase your salary but the condition not now you will
    get increased salary whenever our hospital run profitably up to that time you can not demand for hiked salary but we promise we will pay you the arrears of
    increased salary together.This proposal as an experienced nurse, she will accept, also you will get relief from paying liquid cash as of now.

    Thank You,

    No its never possible to get the job your father without having the qualification for the same job and also you need to get the experience related to the work to get the same position on which your father was working so you need to be proficient in that wrk to get the job and for that you need to to qualify the competetive examination because no one get the government job without giving the competetive examination, so you need to be good in all the areas for that you should be well prepared.
    If you like to get the job then you must qualify the entrance examination for the same and afterthat you will be called for the interview and after that they will select the candidates according to the merit list so you should not expect your father job without any experience and capability.

    As she is a high experienced nurse then she might have not getting the increment from a very long period of time so that she might have gone for the interview in any other organisation and from there she must have got the offer for joining at higher salary so that she is asking for the increment in the salary so all you need to do is give her the increment at that moment of time when she tries to quit the job .
    because sometimes the employees play the trick to get the increment , if she has good effeciency then you should give her the increment because those who deserve the increment should have to get that at any cost because a good employees you will never find easily.
    So if she is a hard wrking employee and also like to work in odd hours and just asking for the increment and not promotion then you should give her the increment.
    After that what is the decision she will decide .

    Re: One of the nurses in our hospital is asking for too much increase in salary due to her being highly experienced

    hello sir
    my suggestion is to you is that it is completely depend on you because if you can think that the nurse has the capability and has a good experience then maybe you have to increase the salary but if you are think that she is only demand to increase the salary without any reason then may be you have the power to not increase the salary so at last talk to the respected nurse that at that time i am unable to increase your salary .
    thanking you .
