Across our fast-growing Amply Network, we work with publishers to share up-to-the-minute content about the challenges affecting the workplace, workforce, and how organisations are responding.
Every week we share a snapshot of the work we’ve produced for some of our partners on the evolving world of work. This week, on U.S. partner VentureBeat, we look at how pay information is starting to become transparent, and what this means for workers. On the London Economic, burnout is in the news, back in the limelight thanks to the recent phenomenon of “quiet quitting”. On Euronews, the worrying rise of deepfakes in job interviews, and what these bad actors are hoping to gain, is in focus.
You can discover even more below and weekly on via our extensive publisher network.

Pay information is finally becoming transparent
When is it ok to talk about money, asks Jobbio contributor Aisling O’Toole on VentureBeat. Maybe that time is now: in the U.S. workplace more and more companies (58% in fact) are becoming transparent about salaries in an effort to eradicate gender and cultural bias.
It’s needed: despite great strides being taken to create a more diverse and equal workplace, the fact remains that in the U.S., women on average earn 16% less than men, while the difference in salary for those from Black, Asian and Hispanic communities can be as high as 43% when compared to white workers.

The rise of deepfakes in job interviews: Why we should be concerned
If you’re fearful of a future where a potential employer can’t tell the difference between a real applicant and a computer-generated forgery, aka a deepfake, and offers the job to them instead of you, you have reason to be a little alarmed, writes Jobbio contributor Susan Armstrong on Euronews.
It’s so serious that the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Centre (IC3) released a Public Service Announcement (PSA) warning employers and job seekers about the rising risk of deepfakes during the recruitment process.
According to the FBI, they’re applying for working from home positions that include “information technology and computer programming, database, and software related job functions. Notably, some reported positions include access to customer PII, financial data, corporate IT databases and/or proprietary information”.
When you consider that more than 34% of businesses around the globe are affected by insider threats yearly, the idea that these can now include deepfakes takes the problem to a whole new level, particularly when they can be hard to detect.

Exhausted at work? Beware of burnout
Trends like the TikTok-led “quiet quitting” one have so captured imaginations, writes Jobbio’s senior content manager Kirstie McDermott on the London Economic this week.
She says that quiet quitting is a trend rooted in employee disengagement, which in turn is a symptom of burnout and exhaustion. And it turns out that UK workers are really feeling this. Recent research found that 88% of UK employees have experienced at least some level of burnout over the last two pandemic years. Additionally, 33% said they frequently suffered from physical and mental exhaustion due to workplace pressures.
