YORK, Pa. - With performance reviews around the corner at many companies, a new Accountemps survey shows employers are ready to reward staff to keep them. Dianna Shafer is the branch manager for Accountemps in Harrisburg and she explained the new survey.

According to results, 63% of CFOs say they plan to promote top performers, while 52% plan to offer raises. The survey results also show that many companies are starting to realize that they must re-recruit their top performers by clearly mapping out their career path in the organization and reevaluating their compensation to make sure it’s in line with what others in the industry are paying for similar positions.

Accountemps recommends that if you think it’s time to go to your boss about a promotion or raise, make your case by highlighting any significant contributions you’ve made to the team recently. They also say you should talk about the extra projects you’ve taken on, and focus especially on the ways you’ve helped the company save money or boost its competitiveness.
