The decision to increase employees' earnings could take into account, among other factors, the level of performance they are demonstrating. Most companies have well-designed evaluation tools that track different performance indicators (KPIs), but the increase in rewards can also come from other backgrounds, such as:
• wage increases in the entire economy or industry where the employer is active;
• the appearance on the market of a new competitor and even the existence of counter-offer to employees;
• the need to increase employees' level of engagement and satisfaction after evaluations have shown low productivity;
• a low retention rate of staff;
• the need to attract new talent and increase the company's reputation in the market;
• direct negotiation between the employee and the employer; if the employee's request comes early, compared to the proven results, the employer can offer him the opportunity to improve his performance within a few months.
