Why Do We Keep Salaries Secret? David Burkus TEDxUniversityofNevada

David Burkus got TEDxUniversityofNevada 2016 off to a great start with this evidence-based talk on pay secrecy. He makes the strong case that we would all be better off if instead of being kept secret, pay was be more open and transparent. Openness remains the best way to ensure fairness. Research supports this by showing that employee beliefs about fair pay lead to more engagement, better performance, and less turnover. How does your pay compare to those you work with? You should know, and so should they.
