Phoenix, AZ (PressExposure) August 10, 2007 -- Arizona--Author, workshop facilitator and human resource expert Laura Browne will present "How to Get a Raise At Work" at Fresh Start Women's Resource Center on August 23 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. "One of the most difficult things for women in the workplace to do," Browne said, "is to ask for a raise, even when they think they deserve one. Some women think their hard work will be noticed and rewarded, but that isn't what happens in most work environments."
Browne, author of Why Can't You Communicate Like Me? How Smart Women Get Results at Work (In Your Face Ink, 2005), has based the Fresh Start workshop on her Amazon Short: "How to Get the Raise You Want: Three Steps to Success." The August 23 interactive presentation will include: â¢ What words employees need to use when asking for a raise, â¢ Biggest mistakes people make when asking for a raise, â¢ Reasons getting a raise is more difficult for women than for me.
