Introducing the Pay Transparency Spectrum

Pay transparency is commonly misconstrued as an either/or choice between keeping pay secret and publishing salaries. In actuality, pay transparency is a spectrum that informs your approach to pay communications. Most organizations target being on the upper end of the spectrum where managers utilize tools like total rewards statements to communicate to individual employees how their pay is determined, where they fall in their pay range, and how to grow with the organization.
