Here Is the Best Time to Ask for a Promotion
Grow Your Business, Not Your Inbox
Thinking about asking for a promotion?
Visier, a people analytics solution provider, set out to find the best time to ask for a career upgrade. Based on their aggregated database of 3.5 million employees from roughly eighty U.S.-based companies, Visier discovered the ideal times, and circumstances, to receive a promotion.
If you’re waiting for cooler weather to ask for a promotion, think again. The research showed summer was the best season to ask for one. In fact, employees were least likely to get a promotion in the fall.
Visier found that the best time in your career to ask for a promotion is during the third year at your company. And company commitment doesn’t always equal promotion. People who have worked at a company for more than 15 years are the least likely to receive a promotion.
If you’re looking to retain your millennial talent, Visier found that millennial managers who had received a promotion within the past two years had a 3.1 percent lower resignation rate than the average.
And millenials, you’re in luck. The research showed that employees ages 25 to 30 received more promotions than any other age groups.
