On this episode of the Employee Cycle podcast, we have Brandon Sammut, Chief People Officer at Zapier, joining us to discuss What It Means To Have A Default To Transparency.  This podcast will cover where a default to transparency came from and why it’s so important with a remote, highly distributed workforce across multiple time zones.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • First off, how did Brandon Sammut end up in the wonderful world of HR? (It was a bit of a winding road!)
  • Secondly, what is your definition of a default to transparency and where did it come from?
  • Next, how does a default to transparency fit into the current workforce environment of layoffs and hiring freezes in some industries? 
  • Sometimes transparency can be too transparent and cause some people to overreact or not be able to synthesize data without it being alarming. What guardrails, if any, are needed around transparency?
  • How can an organization implement a default to transparency culture?
  • One final word: Transparency invites a healthy form of scrutiny and ups the bar of excellence. It matters because it’s one of the best ways to promote equity and inclusion across the organization.
