11 Non-Salary Things To Negotiate
Negotiating is a tough skill to learn but with practice and confidence, you can master it in no time. Although the most common negotiation can be for a higher salary, there are many benefits on the table. This infographic from Self Lender highlights 11 things you can negotiate to bring more value to your life, both financially and personally. Whatever it is you could use more of, don’t be afraid to ask!
The goal of all negotiations is to find a common ground that benefits you both. Don’t put your relationship at risk by being too aggressive or refusing to budge. Instead, be a good listener, know your worth, and back up your offer with facts and data.
Workplace benefits vary from company to company, so ask your employer if there is any room to add things like work from home flexibility or a professional development budget. Determine what would be the most beneficial to your situation and ask your employer to work with you. Along with career benefits, there are many other companies and services you can negotiate with to bring savings to your life.
