Employees actually work harder if they think their boss gets a big fat paycheck

While you might know about the ugly break-up your co-worker is going through, what they did over the weekend or the Netflix NFLX, +1.55% show they’re hooked on, there’s a good chance you don’t know what they earn.

Employers, on the other hand, know exactly how much you and your co-worker are making, and carefully guard the sensitive information to protect it from getting leaked, and with good reason. They don’t want to create resentment among employees.

Turns out, they may have half right in keeping a lid on company salaries. New research suggests employees don’t work as hard if they think they earn less than their co-workers, yet they work even harder if they find out that their bosses get a big fat salary.
