Glassdoor is making significant traction to help push the employment industry forward. In the past 12 months, Glassdoor has been growing at a rapid rate as we now welcome more than 14 million members – up from one million in June 2011. We also now have 3 million approved company reviews, salary reports, CEO approval ratings, interview questions and reviews, plus office photos for more than 220,000 companies in 190 countries – up from 3,000 pieces of employee-generated content for 250 companies just four years ago. In addition, in less than two years, we have forged partnerships with more than 800 companies, from AT&T to HP to UPS, to help drive their employment branding and recruiting efforts.
Glassdoor is only just starting to scratch the surface for the opportunity we see in jobs and employment globally. As we embark on the next phase of Glassdoor, I am pleased to announce that we have secured an additional $20 million in venture capital financing. This latest round, led by DAG Ventures with participation from existing investors Benchmark Capital, Sutter Hill Ventures and Battery Ventures, will help us to grow internationally and build out more resources to better serve job seekers, employees, employers and all those involved in the jobs space.
Where we go to work and who we encourage to come work with us are some of the most critical choices we make in our lives. I truly believe that greater workplace transparency is the future and is one of the most effective tools available when looking for a job or looking to make our next hire. Glassdoor is at the forefront of a significant change in the jobs market, and it is being fueled by a demand for a more social and data-driven approach to making career and hiring decisions.
I am proud to say that Glassdoor is changing the way people search for jobs, and the way companies recruit and retain talent. Workplace transparency is here to stay.
