5 daunting questions my colleagues are afraid to ask (I’m an HR manager)
Starting a hard conversation with your boss/HR manager can sound uncomfortable at times. So I wanted to share the common questions I’ve received over the last 15 years because it shouldn’t be as awkward of a conversation as many of us make it out to be. I'd imagine, odds are pretty high that someone has the same question as you! So here are the most popular requests I've received throughout my career:
1) Can I work more flexible hours?
2) Can I take some time off?
3) Can I have a pay rise?
4) Can I have a promotion?
5) Can you help me with a task?
If you can relate to any of these topics, you’re not alone. And you have the right to ask these questions but also make sure you come with the WHY you're asking part of the equation. Ex: Why do you believe you deserve a raise? Come with the impacts you've made to backup your request! Because these are common questions that colleagues SHOULD be asking throughout there career. Can you relate? Do you have another question you're dreading to ask? Please share!
