There’s a bridge between what’s considered fair between managers and non-managers, when it comes to our pay. 

Research shows 73% of managers think pay is fair and transparent at their workplace – whereas only 60% of employees do. 

AUT Business School Professor Jarrod Haar told Heather du Plessis-Allan he’s not surprised by the data.

He said fairness and transparency of wages in a workplace can help retain staff.
