In this episode of Transform Your Workplace, we tackle the tricky topic of negotiation. According to guest Kelli Thompson, whether you’re negotiating pay, benefits, workplace location, or PTO, “success loves clarity,” both on the side of the employee and the employee. Learn about acceptable pay ranges for your role, the importance of proper negotiation from the outset, and how to present your case.



  • Proper negotiation from the outset has a lasting impact on the financial landscape of a career. 

  • A common misconception is that it’s unprofessional or rude to ask for more money; however, appropriate pay is beneficial for not only the employee but the employer as well.

  • Since organizations make decisions based on market equity, skills, talents, and experience, employees must base their negotiation approach on these factors.

  • Negotiation isn’t just about pay — employees can negotiate when it comes to PTO, tuition, workplace location, benefits, and more.
