What are some free things your boss can do for you if he doesn't want to spend money on a raise for you?

I told my boss to go around and say that I was a great worker who was honest. He did.

They can give you a free lunch.

One thing I have always appreciated is getting told to go home early, or to come in late tomorrow.

Paid day off. Extra time off makes me very happy. Especially, if it is a job that doesn’t get a backlog of work. What mean is, if my emails are going to stack up, and I will still have the same amount of work to do in the end, it doesn’t have as much value as if I answer phones or help on retail sales floor, and I can just skip a day.

They can give recognition and awards, but I read a study once that said companies like to think the employees will care about this as much as they do money, but the truth is they don’t. Most people don’t love their job, and most people work to make money. Still, it’s nice to be recognized.

@RedDeerGuy1 Are you working? I didn’t realize you got a job.

Be flexible with your hours, give discounts to the products and services they sell.

Pay you under the table. Tell him to “say it with cash.”
