Why is there a stigma around salary negotiations?

  • Have I been involved with or led any projects outside of my core role?
  • Have I undertaken any additional certification or training that is relevant to my job role?
  • Does the company provide any benefits beyond what is mandatory in my country?
  • Are you being paid at a fair rate compared to your peers for your role or field of expertise?

  • Not everyone is born with it — negotiation skills are something you can learn.
  • You must be able to advocate for yourself first. Own your wins.
  • Take into consideration what the other side is bringing to the table.
  • Build a relationship with all key stakeholders who are part of the decision-making process.
  • Showcase your track record and the value you bring to the business's progress.
