Asking for a pay rise is notoriously awkward.
Perfecting the balance of not looking like Oliver Twist begging for more while also not coming across as demanding, is no easy feat.
Now throw economic uncertainty into the mix, and employees are treading lightly not to ruffle any feathers and put themselves at risk of being laid off.
Never has negotiating your salary been so hard, yet also so important as the cost of living rises.
