Pay raises…the first time I did it I had no clue what I was doing.  

I just thought my OFS was doing such a great job with work that I randomly gave him a $50/month raise.

Actually…before that raise happened I had given him a $50 bonus one time because of something great he did that month.

To be honest, I still don’t know what I’m doing.

I just try to treat people fairly. 

If I think someone does really well, I give a bigger raise.

I’ve never done a “performance evaluation” with someone. Maybe I should? It’s not my personality or management style. 

I talk through it in full detail in this video:

In the end, there isn’t a standard for pay raises with OFS.

Do what you think is fair.
Be generous.
