Each year, a select group of companies earns one of Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Awards, honoring the Best Places to Work. Winning one of these prestigious awards is not only a great opportunity for employee engagement — it can also become a powerful recruiting tool, with millions of job seekers per year referencing these lists as they decide where to apply. But what are the secrets of the companies that make the Best Places to Work list, and what can your company do to improve your odds of winning? That’s what Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work Tour aims to answer.
On February 27th, executives from Best Places to Work like Facebook, REI and Kimpton Hotels as well as HR and recruiting influencers and members of Glassdoor’s leadership team will share insight into what it takes to recruit top talent, build amazing cultures and become a Best Place to Work. Want a sneak preview? Here are a few exciting items on our agenda.
1. How Becoming a Best Place to Work Can Drive Your Bottom Line
You probably already know that being named a Best Place to Work is a boon for your employee engagement and recruiting efforts — but did you also know that a Best Places win could actually increase your revenue? Numerous studies have shown that companies on the Best Places to Work list financially outperform those that have not made the list. Glassdoor Chief Economist Dr. Andrew Chamberlain will walk Tour attendees through these findings and discuss why recruiting, employer branding and employee engagement are worth investing in, as well as how they can provide a concrete ROI.
