Introducing Glassdoor Product Updates in Response to COVID-19

Glassdoor has launched new features to help employers keep candidates informed about how their company is responding to COVID-19. What matters most right now is that companies are quickly stepping up in a time of need. But over the coming months and years, job seekers and candidates will remember which employers rose to the occasion and how. How a company manages this crisis and leads their people through it will have a direct impact on its reputation as an employer post-pandemic.

Here for You During COVID-19

Glassdoor is in a position to help various organisations, communities and sections of society impacted by COVID-19 through our product, our technology, our skills and our employees. One way we’re stepping up as a company is by connecting job seekers and employers more effectively during this challenging time. Glassdoor has just launched the following new features – already available in your Employer Center.

COVID-19 Company Updates

Company Updates on Glassdoor keep job seekers informed about how your company is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Use them to show how you’re taking care of your people and indicate your current hiring status.

Creating a COVID-19 Company Update will share the news to your profile with a special visual treatment and will also be shared in weekly Follower emails. You can now specify a Company Update as one specific to COVID-19. You can also retroactively indicate previous Company Updates as relevant to COVID-19. All employers with a Glassdoor account can access this feature.

In your Employer Center, navigate to Employer Profile > Company Updates to check it out.

Hiring Surge Status

Let candidates know if you have a spike in demand for workers by clicking on the “Hiring Surge” indicator on your profile. Because candidates can now filter job postings by hiring status, this will boost visibility to your jobs. You can update this at any time, and you can opt out at any time by turning off the feature on the Homepage of your Employer Center. All employers with a Glassdoor account can access this feature.
