Imagine if you knew exactly how much each co-worker at your workplace is making from the person sitting next to you to the CEO. That's the reality at one business technology company called Sum All.

The CEO calls it a "transparent workplace" where everyone knows what their co-workers earn. He told the Today show it creates better trust.

Terry Leap, head of UT's Department of Management in the College of Business Administration joined us with more on this idea of the "transparent workplace". You can watch that entire conversation in the video above.
