Lynne Curry, Ph.D., SPHR (CEO of The Growth Company, Inc.) has over 30 years of experience in management consulting and frequently receives questions from clients regarding situations in the workplace. Today, Dr. Curry releases an article directed toward employers facing pay scale drama when hiring and retaining employees.
Dr. Curry received an email from a client, “We just interviewed the absolute right guy for our company. We really want to hire him. The hitch -- we can't afford him. We're a small startup company in our second year. Those who've worked with us started at $16 to $18 an hour and just recently got raises to $18 to $20 an hour. As owners, we make only $25 an hour ourselves.
This man is more high-powered than anyone on our team and could really help us grow to the next level. Unfortunately, he's now making $22 an hour at a job he's totally bored with. No way can we pay him $22 an hour now. We could pay him $20. We know he wants to work for our company and is bored at his current company. What do we do?”
