Rameez Kaleem, Founder of Includability Official Partner 3R Strategy, has released his new book, A Case of the Mondays on 20 September 2022.
This is his first book which focusses on pay transparency within organisations to give employees context around pay structures and decisions to establish a culture of trust, fairness and equity.
What is the reason behind the book?
According to a global study by Gallop, 85% of people unhappy in their jobs, Recent data shows a staggering 4 out of 5 people say that they get a bad night’s sleep on a Sunday, worried about going back to work on the next day.
This anxiety and unhappiness could be down to a heavy workload or toxic colleagues, however, Rameez believes the reason many of us dread going back to work is because there’s a lack of trust and transparency in the workplace.
What can I learn from this book?
The book covers how to commit to pay transparency without publishing everyone’s salaries and allows the reader to appreciate that pay transparency is a gradual process. The book also provides context to improve employee satisfaction even if organisations can’t afford to pay higher salaries, understand the interplay of pay and having a sense of purpose and belonging in the workplace.
The book provides practical steps and tools of how to successfully implement greater pay transparency to help organisations with their strategies.
Who are the book’s target demographics?
The pay transparency journey is different for each organisation. A Case of the Mondays offers a fresh approach for organisations no matter their starting point and an ideal read for HR specialists and beginners alike to start their pay transparency journey or to pick up additional strategy advice.
