This Year, Bargain for More Pay

Workers have a bit more negotiating clout this year when it comes to wages, thanks to growing talent shortages and a trend among companies to look for ways to bolster their internal capabilities.

A new survey by The Conference Board, called CEO Challenge 2016, found that CEOs worldwide consider the failure to attract and/or retain top talent was the most-cited concern, followed by the need to develop next-generation leaders.

This means that companies are looking within to build and maintain a competitive advantage. And “within” means you.

You may or may not be able to get a raise, but it couldn’t hurt. After years of assuming that the supply of talent exceeded demand, bosses are now realizing that things have changed.
