A promotion is the advancement of a staff employee into a position that has significantly more responsibility, requires more advanced skills, and has greater decision-making authority. Generally, a promotion occurs on the date that the employee assumes the new role.
There is no amount that is standard for a salary increase in conjunction with a promotion. The amount of a promotion increase depends on the employee's current salary, as well as the salary of the new position. In rare cases, if an employee is already well-compensated, there may be no promotion increase to salary.
Salary increases that are not due to promotion, merit, or across-the-board rarely occur.
