During the past period, I’ve (add something specific, like “picked up extra work” or “increased my contribution efforts") and have taken on more responsibilities (add something specific, like “because I felt ready to handle them” or “because I understand my performance is tied to the team’s performance”).

  • Peer reviews and HR polls indicate that my colleagues appreciate my (leadership or management) style. They say I'm a vital team member.

  • (Add something specific, like an award you’ve won or an article you wrote that attracted a lot of site visions. You could also mention a good review, various congratulations you’ve received from staff, free or unpaid time spent at work, or another subject that involves new resources used on the job or address your general commitment)

In light of my accomplishments, hard work, and dedication, I respectfully request a pay raise of $(00,000) annually, either effective immediately or by (MM/DD/YYYY).

According to data taken from (website), the average annual salary for my position is $(00,000), which is (#)% higher than my current salary of $(00,000). An (#)% raise would put my compensation in line with regional, industry, and state standards for the work I’m providing in (2022).

Although I may not need to explain further, I feel that (add proof that sends the point home, like the positive letters you’ve received from employers, other employees, or a specific manager or a performance metric, like “best in the world”) speaks for itself.

Please understand that I’m aware of this job's multiple non-monetary benefits, and I’m very grateful for your generosity.
