Workers value salary transparency. Almost universally (98%), respondents said having salary information listed in a job posting is very (72%) or somewhat (26%) important to them. For employers with clear salary bands and structures, posting salary information could be an easy, immediate adjustment. For others, this change may require a look at pay equity and the establishment of policy around salary structure and transparency.
Either way, as more and more states adopt salary transparency laws, employers everywhere that fail to keep up with this growing trend run the risk of looking out of touch—and losing out on potential applicants who skip these job postings as a matter of course or a matter of principle.
