Food for thought...

A few weeks back I created a poll on LinkedIn. It was a vague but an important question which should get employers, employees and anyone looking to make a career move think 🤔

Why don’t employers advertise salaries on their job ads? Don’t get me wrong, some do but most don’t.

A total of 228 people voted and I’d like to thank all those who did! THANK YOU 🫶🏼 you’re all a bunch of legends.

Of 228, 79% voted 'Nay' 🙅🏼‍♂️ which is no surprise!

There are many reasons why employers choose not to advertise salaries but there’s one in particular which stands out.

In an ideal world, all employees doing the same job would get paid the same, right? Realistically, however, we all know some employees bring individual skills and experiences to a job, making them more or less ‘valuable’. But if companies posted salary information on their ads, that also means existing employees can see this info too 👀...and I promise, you probably won’t like what you see.

The truth is, the most loyal and longstanding members of staff tend to get overlooked the most, which makes no sense 🙃. Employers need to recognise it’ll cost them more to replace top talent than it would be to keep them.

Food for thought...

Employers: To remain competitive, get in touch for a salary guide to see where your firm sits in this current market.

Employees: Get in touch to see if you're getting underpaid 😂 or for a confidential discussion about what you are looking for next!
