Seventy percent of employed adults believe salary transparency fuels employee satisfaction, and 72 percent think it’s good for business — yet only 36 percent say their company discloses pay level information internally, according to a recent Glassdoor survey.
Employers in some countries are more forthcoming about pay levels. The site’s Global Salary Transparency Survey found that fewer U.S. employees (31 percent) say their employer discloses salary information, compared to employers in the U.K. (45 percent) and Canada (45 percent).
Salary transparency can also vary due to gender. Men in the U.S., France and Germany are more likely than their female counterparts to have an employer that shares pay level information within the company.
