Growing Transparency and Engagement with Manager Communication
With the consumerism of rewards and the increase of employee requests for visibility into their rewards, the need for compensation transparency is at an all-time high. If your employees aren’t asking you directly for this transparency, they likely are seeking it in alternative methods (e.g., water cooler, disengagement, unexpected turnover). The catalyst to transparency in the compensation equation is communication from employees’ management team. However, most organizations admit to an overall lack of training and guidance for managers about how to best communicate and articulate the philosophy behind compensation decisions.
