Transparency is a form of generosity.

When you say, “I’ve put all the data out in the open, draw your own conclusions.” It can be a form of generosity. Of course, stating your conclusions should come along as well for those who don’t want to do the work.

A company that is transparent about its finances builds trust. When employees see profitability, they know the company will be around. However, it also allows them to put up a good argument for a raise if the company is doing well. That’s part of the reason it’s generous.
