Salary Advance Letter Format.
Dear [Manager Name],
Before I delve in to the core purpose of my letter, I would like to express my full confidence in the benefits system followed at this esteemed company. I have absolutely no doubt in the company’s desire to establish a fair environment for all staff by adequately compensating them. This is just one of the many reasons I take pride in being part of this wonderful group and the reason I am able to write such letter.
I will like to draw your attention that my current salary is not compatible with industry standards for someone in my position and with my experience. The average industry salary according to [some source, Salary Explorer for example] is [place a number here], while I am currently drawing [your salary]. [List additional salary figures here from another source. You need at least two sources to validate your request].
I am fully aware that increments are not given for reasons not associated with performance, hard work and achievements. But I am not asking for an increment in this letter. I am merely expressing my wish to be compensated in a similar way to other people who are doing the same tasks and duties as I do. I am a hardworking and dedicated person and my performance should not be a hindrance.
Please do not consider my letter as a demand. I like to share my concerns with my employers in an open and honest way and I expect them to express their opinions about my work in the same fashion. In the event of the acceptance to my request, my commitment and aspiration to reach further will be boosted in an unprecedented fashion and I will give everything I have to reach the common goal we are all working for. In the event of rejection, my feelings and work will not downgrade at any rate.
