The study has also shown a change in the attitude of hiring managers, of whom just 7% now feel that the company should be the party to initiate salary discussions with potential employees.

Workers are seemingly more aware of the added value they bring to a company and certain skill shortages, and are taking the initiative to ask for higher compensation. But it’s possible that a candidate lacking sufficient qualities to justify higher reward demands, find they talk themselves out of a role especially if not handled carefully.

If you’re a jobseeker, would you initiate salary discussions with a hiring manager in an interview and at what stage?

If you’re an employer, how do you feel about candidates negotiating for a higher salary, does it put you off or do you respect the candidate for it?
