Communicating Transparency for Pay Fairness, Trust & Motivation


An organization that prioritizes fairness and transparency in compensation and opportunity is a workplace that not only inspires loyalty, excitement, and confidence from its employees but also positions itself for long-term success. Pay transparency is not a one-size-fits-all solution and there is much to be gained by fully assessing specific needs and goals of the organization to determine the most effective approach that enhances the workforce experience and leads to improved organizational outcomes. This session will engage in an exploration of the landscape of trends, implications, and actions surrounding pay transparency to set you on a forward-thinking pathway for you in your organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how a culture of transparency supports objectives.
  • Discuss the barriers and accelerators in pay transparency.
  • Evaluate the role of regulatory and leadership in influencing change in transparency/practices.
  • Identify the stakeholders in transparency matters, and share strategies to fulfill their interests and influence potential.
  • Discuss transparency techniques that have a meaningful impact, regardless of compensation program / leadership readiness.
