Transparency

Your Employees Want Transparency. Here's How to Give It to Them.

The biggest change at the workplace in the past 10 to 15 years is a demand from employees for transparency, according to a human resources expert.

"The one commonality and demand all employees have now is transparency," says Matt Straz, founder and CEO of Namely, an HR and payroll platform. "They want to know what the mission of the company is. It's not enough to say the mission is to make money or go public. That's not a mission. That's an outgrowth of doing the right thing."

Straz says that leaders need to be "tremendous" communicators and provide regular updates to staff. At Namely, he sends out weekly recaps of all that happened with the company. He also hosts regular one-on-one sessions with any employee who wants to meet with him.

"We use transparency to break down some of the walls and divisions that happen naturally as you grow," Straz says.

To hear more from Straz about transparency in the workplace and strategies he uses at his company, watch the video above.
