Great perspectives Berenice! I can see how your leadership choices would work. A leader can have a dominant style with several others to compliment them according to the situation.
The assistant’s pay should have already been researched before and during the hiring and raise processes – however, it is always a good idea to re-look into their compensation and discuss it with them. Please note, that you would not be able to discuss the janitor’s situation or compensation with the assistant. You would also not want to bring the janitor in on the discussion. They did not come to you, only the assistant did. They don’t need to know their salary even came up with another employee. You would not want to create more conflict.
You are right; compensation is tricky and there a lot of alternatives to monetary rewards to choose from. “With today’s flatter organizations, managers throughout the organization play an active role in recruiting and selecting the right employees, developing effective training programs, designing appropriate compensation systems, or creating effective performance appraisal procedures” (Daft, 2012, p. 382).
What if your research came back and the employee deserved a raise, but, there wasn’t a budget for it? Saying thank you and ‘good job’ comments are good, but, not always enough. How would you keep them motivated?
