Evaluate present earnings, evaluate job performance. If that person fits and works well in the group, pay increases are always a great incentive, but you need to make it worth their while, so they don't leave. Bringing salaries up to be close to the National Average is a plus.
All about who you know and what you can do for them. That will never change, just better pay if that's the way it will.
