SALARY INCREASE SAMPLE LETTER – If you are referring someone for a salary increase, here’s a sample letter you may use as a guide.

As someone in a higher position, you can definitely refer someone from your staff for something like a salary increase. You can base this recommendation from important matters like performance evaluation and direct reports which you can oversee being in that position.

To write a salary increment recommendation letter or salary increase recommendation letter in behalf of that employee, a sample letter is provided below. It will show how you construct it and the things you might want to include for it to be effective, professional, and formal.

Surely, there should be valid reason and justification for someone to deserve an increase. Being in the higher position, you surely know the way your company allocates money for salary raises. To indicate a certain specific amount, you must consider the following:

  • company’s average merit increase
  • amount that can be accommodated in the current company budget
  • if the employee is bound to get a change in duties or a new title

Dear Mr. Montes:

I am writing this recommendation letter in support of a salary increase for Mr. Dennis Torres. He is the company’s Marketing Assistant. Mr. Torres has worked for the company for five years already and has a monthly salary of Php 17,000.00.

As I have evaluated his performance, I deemed he is worthy of a raise. Through the years, he’s consistently exceeding expectations and still continues to show commendable work value and ethics.

I, therefore, recommend an increase to Php 20,000.00 for monthly compensation. This is for his continued dedication to working.
