Employer brand

Looking for a new job can be a difficult process and one that candidates want to get right which is why many may turn to review sites like Glassdoor to find out from other staff what it’s actually like to work for an employer.

This could be to do with the company’s culture, perks and benefits, or how employers have handled or treated staff amid the coronavirus crisis.

In a previous interview with HR Grapevine, Jo Creswell, who is now the former Community Expert at Glassdoor, said that particularly throughout the pandemic, staff won’t be afraid to vocalise how bosses are handling the crisis – whether this is positively or poorly.

She said that this includes “highlighting where their employer has shone and occasions where they don’t believe their employer has responded adequately”.
