Thanks for posting those articles -- they're super helpful for others. When I headed up Career Development I strove to create an environment of transparency. That meant we didn't allow pay secrecy policies in our employee manual and trained managers not to imply it. While the penalty is negligible, I always urge companies not to go down the pay secrecy route -- it erodes trust and often leads to higher rates of people leaving (driving down retention).
Thanks for the great conversation about this Kasey and Harold!
