Posted by The Times on Wednesday, March 16, 2019 11:33:06The cost of an employee working for a company is rising.
A recent survey by a major HR consultancy found that in the last three years, the average employee has spent more than $3,000 on his or her salary.
But that is expected to rise, with more than two-thirds of employees expecting to spend more in the next two years, according to an industry expert.
In addition to higher costs for employee salaries, there are some other issues that can be costly for companies.
In 2016, an estimated 15 per cent of US employers reported that their staff was working beyond the usual overtime.
According to the National Employment Law Project (NELP), which advocates for higher pay for low-wage workers, the percentage of employers reporting overtime is higher than the national average.

For a business to pay its staff the right amount, it needs to be profitable, NELP’s data shows.
The company has to generate revenue to support its operations and it has to attract the people who want to work there.
The data suggests that if a business is profitable and its staff is happy, its employees can expect to receive higher pay.
Employers who can afford itThere are three main reasons why companies pay their employees the right salary: the length of the contract, the number of hours worked per week and the length and duration of the benefits package.
For a contract of less than five years, there is no need to pay overtime.
If a contract is longer than five-and-a-half years, an employee should be paid more than what the company can afford to pay for the time.
If a contract lasts longer than a year, a contract should pay the employee an hourly rate that is lower than the amount of time worked, Nelp’s data says.
If the length is longer, then employees can be paid an hourly wage, but that’s not always the case.
The average hourly wage for a person working at a small office is about $7.80.
An employee who is offered a promotion and has not been able to earn enough to cover the extra salary should be offered more than the current wage.
That means an employee who works a 15-hour day should be given an extra $10 an hour to cover his or she salary.
If an employee earns more than that, he or she should be asked to work more hours than usual to pay the additional salary, Nelsp says.
For an employee that works a minimum of 16 hours per week, the pay rate should be at least equal to the number he or her is paid in the normal workweek.
For instance, a 15 hour week should pay an employee $7, according the survey.
The most common reasons companies pay a lower wage to their employees are because they are underperforming, they are overworked or the company has difficulty recruiting or retaining the right talent, NELSP says.
If the company does not have enough employees to support the current employees, the company should consider offering incentives that would help attract new talent, pay for travel and training and make it easier for employees to work remotely.
The key is to have a company that is sustainable, which means it is going to be able to pay employees what they are worth, said Steve Reis, an employment lawyer and the founder of Reis Law Group.
The key to sustainable companies is making sure they can attract and retain employees who are willing to work for less, Reis said.
A company should be able offer benefits to all its employees, regardless of their age, gender, location or whether they are on vacation, according Reis.
A business should have an effective employee-first culture that values and supports the diversity of its employees and their families, said Daniel Tice, a partner at McKinsey & Company who is also an employment consultant.
That way, employees feel valued, said Tice.
