What performance is necessary for future construction salary increases ?

Performance reviews and construction salary negotiations are continual processes. The last step of one construction salary negotiation should be the first step of the next. With this in mind, talk about your future - the next three to six months. Now is a perfect time to set the groundwork for what specific performance objectives you need to achieve to get a larger raise or promotion in the near future. One of the major reasons people are dissatisfied with their construction salary increases is that the raise is less than expected and the construction employer doesn't have room to increase it. Setting the expectations early doesn't guarantee anything, but it does cause your construction employer at least mentally to "reserve" that money for you from the next raise pool.
