As we approach the end of the year, it is time to start thinking about your annual review. Here are a few questions to ask yourself:
Does your company do an employee review each year?
Do they base promotions and raises on that review?
Are you interested in proposing a change in your work situation for 2022?
Would you like to work remotely or have a hybrid schedule? Maybe a 4-day week would be a better fit?
If you have an upcoming review, make sure you are prepared for the discussion so you can negotiate for what you desire.
Forbes recommends that you should schedule a year-end performance review, even if it is something your company doesn't typically do...especially in the current job market. Your boss may be motivated to provide you incentives to stay, realizing that turnover is high and hiring is difficult at this time. Showcasing your strong performance in 2021 will aid in your appeal for more money or a more flexible schedule.
One of the best-kept secrets of having a current resume in your arsenal is the control it can give you at your year-end review. You may not have any intention of switching companies or careers, but would you like an increase in salary? A promotion? More paid vacation time?
Think of the power that comes with a one-page “highlight summary” from the year. Real results, real numbers, real evidence of your worth to your employer. Not only does that sheet of paper communicate your value as an employee, it also shows that YOU are aware of your value.
