Glassdoor Introduces Glassdoor Alerts To Inform Job Seekers About Attempts To Influence Or Manipulate Reviews

Reinforces Commitment to Transparency and the Integrity of Reviews

MILL VALLEY, Calif. (April 11, 2019)Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, introduced “Glassdoor Alerts,” a new program to keep job seekers informed of rare instances when we see aggressive, blatant and repeated attempts by employers or others to influence or manipulate the integrity of reviews.  

Glassdoor Alerts reinforces Glassdoor’s mission to be the most trusted and transparent platform for people everywhere to find a job and company they love.  Glassdoor will post an alert on the profile and review pages of an employer when:

  • Employer Takes Legal Action: An employer has taken legal action against reviewers and/or Glassdoor for the reviews that have appeared on its profile.
  • Someone Inflates Reviews:  We have evidence that someone has taken steps to artificially inflate the rating for an employer with positive reviews posted in violation of Glassdoor’s Community Guidelines.

“The Glassdoor experience is defined by the people using our sites to be able to openly share their workplace experiences and to have confidence that the reviews on our platform are not influenced by employers or anyone else,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor President and COO. “Glassdoor Alerts will benefit job seekers by alerting them to limited and serious instances when we have good reason to believe employers or others are trying to game the system. The program will also help to deter employers from attempting to threaten anonymous reviewers, or someone from trying to influence the integrity of reviews on Glassdoor.”

Glassdoor developed a comprehensive Glassdoor Alerts policy to evaluate when an employer should receive an alert on their profile and the circumstances around when an alert should be removed.  For more information, visit Glassdoor’s Help Center.
