We believe in transparency

The way most companies treat salary reporting is deeply broken – and the lack of transparency means compensation is often based on negotiation ability, not actual skill or performance. When our CEO and co-founder, Tracy Lawrence, realized Chewse had some of the same problems that plague other companies, she decided to change the way we think and talk about compensation at Chewse.

Our founder, Tracy

Compensation should not be taboo

With transparent salaries, we’re able to hire better, faster, & more fairly. During the interview process, we schedule time to discuss salary expectations and the reality of the role, to make sure both parties are on the same page.

By moving away from a negotiation-based approach, we’re also able to prevent pay inequality.

Salary is measured by performance

Chewse salaries operate on an A-G rating system, and every role is classified by skill and output level.

We also have output level discussions every 90 days. Every manager and role adheres to the performance rating system, so we’re able to make sure pay is distributed fairly across the company.

The results speak for themselves

Transparent salaries increase trust and engagement in the workplace – and it shows!

  • Women hold over 50% of our leadership positions
  • Our retention rates are over 3x the industry average
  • We’re able to hire faster and craft a better, clearer interview process
Our founder, Tracy

“Closed salary systems are also really hard on job candidates. It’s incredibly opaque and you’re negotiating in the dark. People can feel like they’re fumbling. That didn’t feel right to us. We want to be shoulder-to-shoulder with our candidates throughout the process— not be friendly, then get adversarial over comp and then assume everything will be fine again.

Incorporating transparency from the very start will set the tone for the organization you become. It’s so critical that you hire people who want open salaries — not just as a tool, but as the type of person who appreciates that approach. You find people who say, ‘I buy into diversity, I buy into equality and fairness.’ Those are the kind of people that you want to grow into leaders”

– Tracy Lawrence, Chewse CEO & co-Founder

Enjoy your work, build lasting relationships, and help us bring joy to companies everywhere!
