With calls for racial justice reverberating across the U.S., employer review site Glassdoor has rolled out several features that offer insights on workplace diversity and inclusiveness.
The new features include:
- Diversity and inclusion ratings: Ratings on a 1-to-5 point scale based on anonymous employee reports on their satisfaction with D&I at current or past companies.
- Employee demographics: U.S.-based employees can anonymously share their demographic information on their Glassdoor profile, which, in the near future, will feed into company ratings and pay broken down by demographic group.
- Diversity FAQs for companies: A list of popular questions job seekers ask about companies paired with relevant company reviews.
- Tools letting employers show D&I programs and goals: Employers can highlight programs, initiatives and deadlines to create more equitable workplaces.
“There is immense power in the collective voice as a means for change,” Glassdoor Chief Product Officer Annie Pearl said in an official statement. “By inviting employees and job seekers to anonymously share their experiences on Glassdoor, we are helping millions navigate their careers and encouraging others to share their opinions without fear of retaliation.”
Glassdoor, owned by Japan-based Recruit Holdings, is the No. 2 recruitment platform in the world by traffic, second only to sister company Indeed.com.
In July, Glassdoor announced it would operate in partnership with Indeed, with Indeed’s job postings also running on Glassdoor. The companies noted it would expose clients’ job postings to more than 80% of U.S. job seekers.
The switch came just before a depressed earnings report for Recruit on the quarter ended June 30. Company revenue as a whole was down 20% year-on-year, while its HR segment (encompassing Glassdoor and Indeed) was down 28% year-on-year.
