Salesforce, Google rank high with new Glassdoor diversity ratings

Job seekers want to work at companies that embrace diversity and inclusion; Glassdoor’s newest feature will make it easier to find them.

Two out of three employees and job seekers told Glassdoor they trust employee reviews the most when it comes to employer attitudes about diversity and inclusion. Most of these job seekers (76%) said having a diverse workforce is an important factor in their decision to accept or decline job offers. Glassdoor added diversity and inclusion to its overall employee ratings on Wednesday, joining other metrics like work-life balance, senior management, culture and values and benefits and compensation.

“Many companies have been making commitments around diversity and inclusion in recent months, but now job seekers and employees want to see action and real change from employers,” says Carina Cortez, chief people officer at Glassdoor. “These insights will give job seekers and employees an even more personalized look into what their experience at a company may look like, helping people make more informed decisions about where to work.”

Companies, like Salesforce, now receive a diversity rating from employees on Glassdoor.

A recent Glassdoor survey found that 63% of U.S. employees believe that their company should be doing more to diversify their workforce. Employees can anonymously share their company’s demographics through their Glassdoor profile pages, including race and ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, parental status and others. The website also allows employers to create a section on their Glassdoor profile that highlights diversity and inclusion programs at their company. Amazon, eBay, Facebook and Visa have added diversity sections to their company profile.

“These new product features help employers hold themselves accountable to commitments, progress and goals that will create more equitable workplaces for their employees,” Cortez says. “This kind of transparency drives accountability, which leads to positive change.”
