With 78% of employees reporting that information from those on the inside is influential when deciding where to work*, employers that embrace and encourage workplace transparency may have the edge when it comes to recruiting and retaining top talent. Job candidates have made it clear – they want to work for employers who are up front about who they are as a company, including sharing realities of what’s working well and what needs improvement.
Now, Glassdoor is proud to launch its new OpenCompany program, recognizing employers that proactively promote and embrace workplace transparency; in turn, letting prospective employees know that they’re committed to workplace transparency.
Here’s how it works – At a minimum, an employer must register for a Free Employer Account. Then, the employer must complete five simple steps to achieve OpenCompany status, including ensuring your profile is up to date, responding to reviews, getting employees to share reviews, among a couple other steps. Once complete, an employer is eligible to receive the OpenCompany recognition. In fact, several companies have already received this distinction, including Autodesk, Adknowledge, AllState, BMC Software, Cigna, Deloitte and Informatica. Check out the image below to see how prospective talent will know that an employer is committed to workplace transparency with the OpenCompany badge on its profile:
Glassdoor’s OpenCompany program is free for any employer to participate. Glassdoor’s community guidelines must also be met.
