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.
This year we launched the Corporate Rebels Academy and our first course on new ways of working. Four cohorts of students have studied the world's most progressive organizations. Today, we announce 2022 class dates and open enrollments. You can apply now!
My company, Happy, was not in happy shape! Sales had flatlined over 5 years. We were making a substantial loss. We had enough in the bank to last just 6 months. And we had parted company with the M.D. of our largest department.
There is a lot of comfort in knowing your way of running meetings is actually effective. Comforting because you know people aren’t annoyed by being in a pointless or unfocused meeting, and also because you know something is actually getting accomplished.
