I'm looking to implement transparent salaries, which would lead onto a self-set model in the future – but want to be able to sell this to the team and ensure everyone's on board. Salaries are often seen as private & sensitive and although the majority aren't against this, there are a few concerns.
Can anyone help with additional benefits, or case studies (particularly around engagement / trust % increases etc.)?
I've spoken to various companies recently such as Smarkets & Ian Martin Group, and know of companies such as Happy, Buffer, 10Pines etc. but any others with great stories would be good to connect with.
In my experience (as a HR lead and helping organisations enable self-management), the key to making pay transparent is making pay decisions transparent and fair.
That process of (openly) reviewing how you make pay decisions is also a really great way to include people throughout the business in co-creating a system which is seen to be fair and that everyone feels ownership over.
Happy to chat if that's useful.
Most career goals are still focused on climbing a broken corporate ladder. Linear career paths are still the norm. Yet we all know the world (of work) changes quickly. Let's say goodbye to traditional career paths and embrace a more fluid world.
