Is it right to be promoted without a pay increase?

victor Williams

With a rebel yell! No. No. No. And how fun to proclaim! No. No. No. Here’s why.  Notwithstanding the fact that sacrifices within any organization must be made from time-to-time—hopefully management include itself, proportionately of course—it’s simple math.  More work or increased responsibilities always equals “more”.  More is not limited to pay, necessarily.   More can include any of the nominated items of the benefit package, bonus structure, work-hours/schedule or something in the future, but better than a promise of a better tomorrow (get in writing). Relatively anything one can imagine can be a form of compensation beyond the promotion. Note, lip-service does not qualify as compensation. You must request and negotiate for additional and/or alternative compensation before you accept the promotion—lest uncertainty compounds matters and the duties of the promotion are morphed into your current role. Abate resentment, request and negotiate what is right for you; after all management saw fit to promote you. The efficacy of any business is its people, moreover, the sum of the parts still equals the whole.
