Come appraisal time, I’ve just send in my self appraisal form as well as my feed backs about my immediate manager pending feedback from the management of my current employer.
Many employers have statements like this in their offer of employment ‘ Please note that you are expected to keep the salary package strictly confidential and not to share information regarding the salary with any one within the company‘
This has always kept me wondering why they do so, the logic being if any company is paying all the employees well then they need not be so low on confidence and self esteem about one well payed employee paying a compliment to another well payed employee about how the company is taking good care both of them.
Please do read this article by Rebecca Fernandezy titled How much transparency is too much? which does attempt to gather some feed back on what I have been pointing to.
