In spirit of #GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to giving back to the community, we’re proud Glassdoor has been recognized for joining the Pledge 1% movement.

Our mission at Glassdoor is to help people everywhere find a job and company they love, and by making this pledge, we are committing to donating one percent of our product, equity and employees’ time to supporting groups and communities that help those who might be disadvantaged, develop job skills and find meaningful work.

Since launching in 2014, more than 500 companies have joined the Pledge 1% movement, and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this esteemed group. Here at Glassdoor, we strongly believe that making the commitment today will lead to a sizeable impact in the future.

Taking this pledge is the first step on our journey, so the exact mechanics of our program are being scoped. While we have focused on encouraging our employees to volunteer by offering paid time off and supporting local initiatives in our backyards, we realize we can do more to give back. The 1% pledge will be the cornerstone of our plans to bring philanthropy to the forefront at Glassdoor.


The Pledge 1% movement is aiming to secure 1,000 new pledges within the next year. This is an ambitious goal, but one we believe is achievable. To learn more about how your company can take the pledge, visit
