What should you be paying your digital agency employees? What resources should you be looking at in order to gauge the appropriate pay range or salary?
As a digital agency owner, naturally you want to know how to compensate your team. You want to make sure they feel valued while also doing what’s best for bottom line. But it can get overwhelming with all the different resources out there, such as Glass Door or others.
I actually just take a hard look at the situation and ask myself these 3 questions:
1. What can I afford to pay?
2. What impact would this employee make on the business?
3. What does the employee need in order to be happy?
At the end of the day, it doesn’t actually matter what you pay them as long as you help them achieve their goals. People make a decision on who they work for based on how it makes them feel. They want to feel as though their making a contribution to something great, they want to feel significant and they want to know there’s an opportunity for personal and professional growth.
In my agency, we allowed our team to grow within the company and contribute to the agency’s growth. We communicated the core values and beliefs so the team could feel aligned with us. And, we made sure the team knew where we were headed as a business so they could understand and feel they had a significant role in the big picture.
So, what are you struggling with? Let me know so I can answer your questions here.
