Less than half of employers keep staff informed about their pensionsarrangements on an on-going basis, according to the annual reward survey by theCIPD. Results showed that while the vast majority of employers (88 per cent)notify staff about pensions during their induction process, only 46 per centcontinue to keep their workforce updated on a regular basis. Other findings from the research, which surveyed 572 organisations inNovember 2003, revealed that a third of employers ask staff not to talk abouttheir pay and conditions with co-workers, while a quarter of them ask employeesnot to talk about pay with anyone outside of the organisation. Charles Cotton, CIPD adviser on reward and employment conditions, said thatemployers’ secrecy on pay might cause problems in the workplace. “It could lead to ill-founded rumours flying around the office leadingto dissatisfaction and falling commitment,” he said. “We believe that employers should be open about how salary levels aredetermined and how pay progression is managed.” Keeping salary levels secret leads to staff dissatisfactionOn 17 Feb 2004 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more
