Hi {Boss_Name},

I hope this email finds you well.

I wanted to take a moment to share my feelings regarding the recent 7% salary increment that I received.

While I appreciate the recognition of my efforts,

I’m disappointed with the raise as it does not align with the contributions I have made to the company.

Over the past year, I’ve achieved significant accomplishments that have positively impacted the company’s growth:

1)  Accomplishment 1: Successfully led the implementation of a new project management system, resulting in streamlined workflows and a 20% increase in team productivity.
2) Accomplishment 2: Implemented a comprehensive customer feedback system, leading to an improvement in customer satisfaction by 25% and an increase in customer retention.
3) Accomplishment 3: Received recognition from clients for exceptional service, resulting in a 40% increase in repeat business and referrals.

Given these achievements,  I firmly believe that a 15% pay increase would be a fair acknowledgment of my contributions to the company’s growth.

I kindly request an opportunity to discuss this matter further.

Thanks for your time and I look forward to having a conversation with you.
