Should businesses pay people on a structured and distinct scale or allow employees to negotiate salaries?
Full transparency over pay can help
in the workplace.
Knowing exactly the salary and conditions before accepting the job allows one to immediately know what to expect. Both employer and employee understand clearly the situation and there is no misunderstanding.
So long as both sides are in agreement with the fixed salary, both employer and employees can relax as there is no more discussion or questioning about the salary.
Full transparency over pay will only help to build trust if a company is paying the same salaries to everyone who is performing the same job; otherwise such a policy could actually lead to greater distrust and resentment among employees.
Not moving on salaries does not create trust but instead a disconnection between employer and employee since there is no room for discussion on an important foundation of the job.
The process of negotiating a salary is beneficial for building trust and communication. It shows the integrity and assertiveness of the employee for not settling and knowing their value.
