An employer can give a raise ranging between 3 percent to 5 percent to his or her employees. Giving a raise depends on the performance and appraisal of an individual employee or the whole staff.
Typically, any raise in the salary of employees is a sign of appreciation that shows how the employer values them. An employer can decide to give a high percentage to the best performers than the under performers. Personal contributions and successes of an individual employer may be considered when awarding a raise. A raise in income can help to motivate employees thus helping the under performers to put in more efforts.
