Salary transparency to increase as UK workers upload anonymous pay details to Glassdoor website

The salaries of thousands of British workers are about to hit the internet, according to reports.

International website Glassdoor.com is said to be about to add British wages to its extensive searchable database.

It is another step towards wage transparency after the draft Equality Bill outlined measures to ban gagging clauses that prevent employees from discussing their salaries with each other.

The Glassdoor website allows current and former employees to post anonymous salary entries and company reviews, which are then vetted for accuracy. More than 50,000 entries have been made from 80 countries.

While British reviews are included, the salaries will only be added in the coming days.

Robert Hohman, chief executive of the website, told The Times: “People don’t talk enough about how they can be more valuable. This should help them. Knowledge is power.”
