Further Delivering on Glassdoor’s Pledge 1% Commitment

MILL VALLEY, Calif. (Nov 2, 2016) –  Glassdoor, Inc., the world’s most transparent jobs and recruiting marketplace, today announced several initiatives as part of its commitment to the Pledge 1% movement, a corporate philanthropy effort dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business. In addition to offering discounted pricing on its employer branding solutions, Glassdoor will now also offer free job postings to eligible nonprofits.

Glassdoor Solutions for Nonprofits includes:

  • Discounts of 25-50 percent off of Glassdoor’s recruiting and employer branding packages.
  • Five free single job postings per year through Glassdoor’s partnership with TechSoup, an organization dedicated to serving the world’s nonprofits with transformative technology products, knowledge, and services.
  • Five free single job postings per year, available to Glassdoor employees, to donate to a nonprofit of their choosing.

In 2015, Glassdoor joined hundreds of other companies in taking the 1% Pledge, committing to donate one percent of its product, equity and employee’s time to supporting underserved groups and communities. Glassdoor is primarily directing this focus to areas that align with Glassdoor’s mission, such as education, job training and developmental programs to help people find meaningful work. In addition to donating its product, Glassdoor also encourages employee volunteerism and provides every employee three paid volunteer days off each year to support organizations of their choice or through company-sponsored volunteer events. Glassdoor has also earmarked a portion of its equity to be converted to capital following a liquidity event to support nonprofits and community programs delivering social impact.

By donating its recruiting solutions, Glassdoor gives nonprofits easier access to the most effective recruiting platform.1 Glassdoor currently welcomes 34 million unique users to its mobile applications and website monthly, the majority of whom are actively looking for a job or are open to new opportunities. The nonprofit sector is the third-largest employment sector in the U.S., with over 2 million nonprofits employing nearly 11 million employees.2

“Like any employer, nonprofits need to attract and retain top talent who are aligned with their mission. We’re delighted to help these important organizations access Glassdoor and our growing audience of job seekers,” said Robert Hohman, co-founder and CEO, Glassdoor. “Our commitment to fulfill our pledge of donating time, product and equity is perfectly aligned with Glassdoor’s mission to help people find a job and company they love. By helping nonprofits recruit people aligned with their mission, we hope we can help contribute to sizeable impact in the future.”

“TechSoup is excited to add Glassdoor’s job search and recruiting capabilities plus its impressive reach as our latest program designed to benefit a wide array of TechSoup users,” said Gayle Samuelson Carpentier, chief business development officer, TechSoup. “Glassdoor’s generous donation of up to five job postings per year will enable our nonprofits and libraries to reach an extensive, potentially untapped audience of job seekers. We’re proud to welcome Glassdoor to our family of donors!”

Glassdoor’s employer branding solutions include Enhanced Profile packages that allow employers to fine tune their company profile on Glassdoor and customize messaging while also integrating photos, videos, social media feeds and more. This customized Enhanced Profile content is adjacent to Glassdoor user-generated content and allows non-profits to articulate their employee value proposition to attract the right talent.  Glassdoor’s job advertising solutions allow employers to tap into a talent pool of tens of millions of job seekers every month and target specific types of candidates.
