A Case of the Mondays by Rameez Kaleem

What is pay transparency?
Despite the common misconception, it’s not about publishing everyone’s salaries. It’s about providing context to employees about how pay decisions are made to establish a culture of trust, fairness and equality.

The pay transparency journey is different for each organisation. It is dependent on the starting position and the culture already in place. A Case of the Mondays is an ideal read for all organisations, no matter their starting point.

“A thought-provoking and practical guide for any HR professional embarking on a pay transparency journey in their organisation”

Lizzie Henson, Founder, HR Ninjas

“The book all business leaders and HR directors should read if they are looking to understand the benefits of pay transparency.”

John Athanasiou, Director of People, HarperCollins UK & Ireland

“This book is a must read for all HR professionals… it makes pay transparency simple and easy to understand with practical steps.”

Ed Airey, Group Employee Experience Director, National Express

What Will You Learn from This Book?

With a whopping
85% of people unhappy in their jobs, it’s no wonder why many people experience Sunday night dread. In fact, recent data shows that a staggering 4 out of 5 people say they get a bad night’s sleep on a Sunday, worried about going to work the next day.

This anxiety and unhappiness could be down to a heavy workload or toxic colleagues, however, Rameez Kaleem believes the reason many of us dread going to work is because there’s a lack of trust and transparency in the workplace.

This book will help you to:

  • Commit to pay transparency without publishing everyone’s salaries
  • Appreciate that pay transparency is a gradual process
  • Provide context to improve employee satisfaction even if you can’t afford to pay higher salaries
  • Understand the interplay of pay and having a sense of purpose and belonging in the workplace
  • Plan and successfully implement more pay transparency in your organisation
