It’s an unwritten rule in the corporate world – HR doesn’t disclose the salaries of staff. However, why is it all a big secret – would mayhem really ensue if salaries were completely transparent?

    While i agree with the concept of the whole pay for performance culture being open and transparent to all - revealing individual salary details has many more legal connotations than HR - individual salary details are personal information (much like age etc) which cannot be revealed to other employees and can effect people loan/financing capabilities . Hence while the concept is good inthe current legislative enviornment it is uthopian at best

    Not sure salary data is so secret anyway these days with sites such as LiveSalary and GlassDoor.
