Glassdoor is delivering a deeper look inside the modern workplace by unlocking insights into how employees feel about diversity, equity, and inclusion and by displaying employees’ differing sentiment and pay,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor Chief Executive Officer. “Increased workplace transparency can show us where we are strong and where we are weak.

Glassdoor adopted a method that can be viewed as an individualistic approach. Everyone can gain an insight into employee experience and workplace environment via company/CEO ratings, race/ethnicity, gender identity, parental or caregiver status, disability, sexual orientation, and veteran status. People will be able to see what all the demographic groups think about the company. Job seekers and employees can compare various companies and gain personalized insights. It even benefits employers so that they may improve on what employees feel is not right within the office. Glassdoor has so far collected 800,000 demographic insights from 187,000 employees at more than 3,300 companies like Walmart, Amazon, Target, Starbucks, and AT&T. They have included anonymity as a major factor while showing the data to third parties. A Glassdoor Harris Poll survey reveals that over 76% of the employees and job seekers think that diversity plays an important role in a workplace.
