I have been a long time believer that transparency is a good thing for good people and good businesses. If you got nothing to hide, you shouldn’t have a problem with transparency in business. It will help the good businesses get better and get rid of the bad businesses quicker.
The above video is a great interview from TechCrunch TV with Buffer co founders Joel Gascoigne and Leo Widrich. They discuss why transparency is important to them and how it helps them.
These are a few quotes from the video.
Transparency makes it easier, it stops you having to remember what you have said to one person and you cant say to another.
I also stumbled across their open salary policy on their blog which is the most transparent of any company I have ever seen. They explain the open salaries a bit more in the video below. It is also well worth a watch.
