Introducing Glassdoor’s New Follower Reports

You’ve got followers! Maybe it’s because what your company does is cool, or you have a reputation for having a happy workforce. Or maybe your company has been in the news – or your headquarters is right around the corner. Whatever the reason you’re on their radar, job seekers – both active and passive – are watching you on Glassdoor by “following” favourite employers. 

Your company’s followers on Glassdoor are engaged.

  • Followers are 2X more likely to view, click, and apply start on jobs than non-followers. (1)
  • More than 70% of followers are open to receiving job opportunities and/or content from a company relevant to their role / location. (2)

In this tight hiring market, it’s critical that you tap into this engaged audience with meaningful interactions so you stay top-of-mind when they think of future possibilities. Job seekers want to feel drawn to an employer on the basis of factors that go beyond compensation – they want to align with a deeper mission and make human connections that reinforce their big-picture thinking in the process of evaluating an opportunity. 

Your company’s followers on Glassdoor are interested

  • Followers spend twice as much time visiting and reading content on Glassdoor than non-followers. (3)
  • The top 3 pieces of content followers are looking for are: 1) relevant new jobs, 2) salaries and benefits from employees, and 3) content relevant to their role / location. (4)

Transactional interactions at the point of application and screening are no longer cutting it. Building a pipeline of quality candidates requires nurturing relationships and warming them up to the idea of going after a role with your company when the moment is right. It’s become nothing short of critical to connecting with and winning the people who will fuel the future of your company. 

Glassdoor’s new Follower Reports give you the power to make those important connections with interested candidates and build lasting relationships that lead to filling (and fulfilling) roles. They allow you to nurture your talent pipeline to fill roles faster and more effectively.
