  • How To Survive Employee Wage Demands

    How do employee pay demands affect business finance and how can you achieve happy, contented staff without having to pay through the nose to get it? We take a look at the issues affecting employers when confronted by employee wage demands and what you can do to put yourself in the best position to address them.

    Setting Employee Salaries

    Receiving increased wage demands from employees can be a delicate balancing act. On the one hand you risk paying them too little and losing talent to competitors, and on the other you risk paying them too much and crippling the finances of your business.

    Having the ability to set salaries correctly from the start is a benefit new businesses can control, and it can help align your business finances to cope with increases in the future, as well as ensuring that you are within industry-standard tolerances. If your cash flow is healthy and your finances are good, then you may consider paying above industry standard in order to attract the very best talent, but that still leaves you with the same increased employee wage demands in the future.

    Most business owners want to attract good talent and pay them fairly. But how can you set salaries that reflect the best-of-both-worlds scenario?

    Determining the relative value of each employee

    Ask yourself, 'how much value or revenue is each employee likely to bring in?' This should be the uppermost of what you can pay that employee.

    For a sales person tasked with generating revenue with a profit of £250,000 per year, you might well be looking at paying them £50,000 + commission and benefits.

    But the same formula might not be used for admin or support staff. Perhaps they don't make money, but they will save you some. Working out how much they can save your business is the key to working out their relative and fair salary expectations. It can certainly help you figure out the most amount of money their position is actually worth.

    Finding common ground in salary expectations

    There are many ways you can set about establishing either the market rate for that position or the least you are willing to pay them. Taking a look at similar jobs from online job-sites is one, and discussing employee wages amongst your networking meet-ups is another.

    The chances are you won't be willing to pay top-rate for candidates, but you probably won't want to pay the minimum either, because as the saying goes 'when you pay someone peanuts...'. It is highly likely that you will be looking at a salary somewhere in between, where you are more likely to find the best talent, willing to work for a mutually commensurate salary that fits in with your business finance projections and budget.
