MILL VALLEY, CALIF. (19 MAY, 2015) Glassdoor, the world’s most transparent jobs and careers marketplace, marks a new milestone today in its international growth as it introduces its Dutch language site (http://www.glassdoor.nl), iOS and Android apps. This represents the company’s third non-English and eighth country-specific site.
As of today, Glassdoor offers Dutch job seekers well over 80,000 job listings and first-hand insights into more than 3,000 employers in the Netherlands, including leading employers such as TomTom, Booking.com, ING and Philips Electronics. Insights into companies include employee- provided company reviews, salary reports, interview reviews, benefit reviews and office photos. In addition, Glassdoor works with more than 2,100 employers across North America and Europe to support their recruiting and employer branding needs. Several current multinational and European-headquartered employer clients include L’Oreal, BNP Paribas, Philips Electronics and Booking.com.
“We are excited to launch in the Netherlands and help meet the needs of Dutch job seekers as well as provide greater workplace transparency into local employers,” said Diarmuid Russell, Glassdoor Senior Vice President of International. “We believe that by unlocking valuable information about an important element of people’s lives – their careers – we can help people find jobs they love and in turn help companies recruit more effectively.”
Glassdoor uses a “give-to-get” model, offering free access to all Glassdoor data once a user contributes their own content, such as a salary report, company review, interview review and questions, benefits review and/or office photo. Job listings are always accessible by anyone, any time. No other jobs platform combines job listings with this level of depth and details into specific jobs at specific companies.
“Transparency at work is important as more than a third of employees in Northern Europe report that their jobs are below the expectations set during the interview process . Given all the time employees spend at work and away from family and friends, landing a job that is materially different than what one expected can be a costly mistake both for the job seeker and the employer,” said Tico Andrea, Glassdoor Netherlands product manager.
For all Netherlands-based employers, Glassdoor currently offers a free employer account giving employers an easy-to-use channel with tools and resources to engage directly with job seekers and employers. With a free employer account, an official company representative can gain valuable insights and analytics to understand what influences their hiring efforts and reputation. The account also allows employers to respond to their company’s reviews and flag any reviews that may be inappropriate and post real-time updates on their profile pages. Over the coming months, Glassdoor will be working to add local Dutch recruiting and employer branding solutions. Learn more about Glassdoor for Employers.
