A Glassdoor Free Employer Profile is Table Stakes. Here's What You Gain with an Enhanced Profile

At Glassdoor, we believe that greater transparency helps candidates find the right jobs, and employers find the right candidates. That's why all employers have the option to claim a Free Employer Profile, which allows you to update your basic company information, give job seekers a preview of what it's like to work for your company, gain visibility into how many people are visiting your profile, and respond to reviews.

Given that 8 in 10 Glassdoor users agree that their perception of a company improves after seeing them respond to a review (1), it's impossible to deny the importance of having a strategy for optimizing your Glassdoor profile. Keep in mind, though, that other companies can advertise jobs on your page and access to analytics is limited with your free account.

Your Free Employer Profile is Just the Beginning

The essential tools you gain with a Glassdoor Free Employer Profile just scratch the surface of the powerful engine for turning a self-propelling flywheel of job seeker interest, employee engagement, authentic reviews, great employer reputation, and - starting the cycle over again - successful recruiting. With your Glassdoor Enhanced Profile, you can unlock deeper analytics and insights, and take full advantage of your employer brand presence. Here's an overview.

With a Glassdoor Enhanced Profile, you can:

1. Amplify Your 'Why'

Feature a review that best highlights you as an employer job seekers will want to work for, and further customize content to let your authenticity shine. Grow your story with custom content, including the ability to add:

  • A robust 'Why Work With Us" section

Present a seamless employer brand no matter how complex your organizational structure using affiliated and nested profiles. These offer the flexibility of showcasing local cultures and initiatives with tailored content, while still sharing your brand story at large.

6. Leverage Deep Analytics & Insights

Build on your employer brand and grow your story with deeper analytics, such as:

  • Follower demographics & engagement
  • Ratings by job title & location
  • Competitor comparisons
  • Keyword analysis of reviews
  • Industry benchmarking (5)

Remember, the best employer brands are built organically and authentically by people, not propped up and processed by executives. That's why it's so important to build your employer brand from the inside out - by treating your people well, ensuring everyone has a feeling of belonging, and listening to and learning from real feedback in Glassdoor reviews. It's only then that the genuine story about your workplace - told by the people who know it best - will serve to draw more great people, diverse perspectives and innovation to your company.
