Sometimes there’s very little room to move on your salary, but you really appreciate the company you work for and don’t feel like walking away, even though you know you could be making more money.
In this case, you could negotiate benefits since they’re usually easier to get approved. Non-salary negotiations could be:
✓Extra vacation time
✓Productivity bonus payments
✓Reimbursements, such as a car or a cell phone allowance
✓Having your certification renewal paid by the company
✓Working from home a day or two a week
These benefits can help you save money and improve work-life balance, and there’s no price tag for such things.
