You Should Lay The Groundwork For Your 2023 Pay Rise Now

Bank of England’s just-released biannual household survey indicates that about one in 12 households in the UK has said that a pay rise has helped them to fund higher expenditure brought about by rising costs, writes Jobbio’s senior content manager Kirstie McDermott on City AM.

While it’s absolutely true that the vast majority of employers aren’t going to grant a salary bump based on financial circumstances alone, there are some things you can do now to lay the groundwork for a raise in 2023.

The real key to success is for you to become your own best advocate at work. This has the effect of placing you front and centre in your manager’s mind and will hopefully get you noticed within the wider business too.

Four-day Working Week Trials Are Coming To Australia

Following on from a successful 18-month pilot in New Zealand, Unilever is extending its own four-day work week trial to its Australian business, writes Jobbio content editor Aoibhinn Mc Bride on Professional Beauty.

Is it possible to achieve the same results, profits and output in a four-day work week instead of the standard five days? Unilever found that 67% of employees reported a better work-life balance, stress dropped by 33% and feelings of vigour at work increased by 15%.

Following the 100:80:100 principle—where staff retain 100% of their salary, work 80% of the week and still deliver 100% of business outcomes—employees in Australia will mirror the behaviour of those who took part in the New Zealand trial and be able to work with their managers to agree their day off or the working hours that are most beneficial to them.

Just what are ‘returnships’ and why are they trending right now?

A new workplace trend is on the rise. Returnships are emerging as a viable way to get back into the 9-5, without having to start from the bottom, writes Kirstie McDermott on The Next Web.

Companies such as Amazon, Accenture, and Goldman Sachs are all offering return-to-work programs as a way to capture talent, and smooth a path for professionals to return to the workforce after a career break.

While the concept of a return to work after an extended break isn’t new — just ask any parent who has taken a few years off to care for children — the fact that so many companies have recognised this talent pool and are developing programs to support it, is a new approach.
