Starting Salaries / New Hire Salaries
Establishing a starting salary for a new employee or deciding to give a promotional increase requires careful consideration. In both cases, you should determine how the employee’s prior experience, knowledge, and skills compare with other employees already performing the same job.
Before establishing the starting salary of a new employee, consider each of the following factors:
- Recruiting difficulty (size of qualified applicant pool, length of recruitment, etc.)
- Comparable internal salaries
- Employee’s knowledge, skills, and experience compared to others performing similar work
