  1. Why Smart Talent Pros Are Becoming Better Marketers… By Using Company Reputation Sites Like Glassdoor
  2. Presenter Info • Kris Dunn • CHRO at Kinetix (RPO, Recruiting) • Founder of Fistful of Talent , The HR Capitalist • Hoops Junkie • Tim Sackett • President at HRU Technical Resources • Blogger #1 at the aptly named Tim Sackett Project • Contributor at Fistful of Talent #Glassdoor
  3. The 5 Biggest Myths About Company Reputation Sites Like Glassdoor (and which ones you help perpetuate by not engaging)
  4. Riding Shotgun With KD and Tim • Alison Hadden • Director of Product Marketing at Glassdoor • One Daughter – 8 years old (lab) • Once traveled to Korea for Martial Arts Training • @alisonhadden • www.linkedin.com/in/alisonhadden
  5. Myth #1: Reputation Sites Like Glassdoor Are Just RANT Sites… • This is straight up bias – or probably laziness – on the part of HR pros. • 70% of employees rating on Glassdoor are “OK” or “Satisfied” with their job or company. • Asking for Pros and Cons balances feedback • Average rating: 3.2 out of 5. • Is Neutral the new Negative? • THE PROBLEM IS YOU FACTOR: HIGH
  6. Myth #2 – Reputation Sites Like Glassdoor Allow People to Post Anything They Want… • Any reputation site worth its salt will review comments… • Glassdoor: Multi-tied review process, 15% of comments rejected. • Glassdoor: You can flag comments for a second look if needed. • BUT – That doesn’t mean people can’t be negative. • The best defense is good offense. • THE PROBLEM IS YOU FACTOR: Moderate (This is just more rationalization of the “Rant”)
  7. Myth #3 – Employers Have No Voice at Reputation Sites Like Glassdoor... • You gotta be in the game to play the game. • Have you signed up for your free employer account that is available? • Voice comes in two parts – putting your best foot forward with the features available to you as an employer, but also engaging as a participant in the process. • Things you can do by signing up for an employer account: Respond to reviews as a company rep, flag inappropriate reviews, post awards, etc. • THE PROBLEM IS YOU FACTOR: HIGH
  8. Myth #4 – Only the Kids Are Using Reputation Sites, So I Don’t Have to Worry About It • This just in – Kids are fleeing Facebook due to all the old people present. • Industry wide - 74% of job seekers are likely to read reviews before accepting a job offer. • At Glassdoor – 55% of users have more than 10 years of experience. • THE PROBLEM IS YOU FACTOR: MODERATE, BUT HIGH IF YOU ARE AN OLD HR PRO RESISTANT TO CHANGE
  9. MYTH #5: You Can’t Get Good Employees to Write a Nice Review… • We call BS • Is the problem they won’t, or you haven’t asked? • If you believe Reputation sites like Glassdoor are Rant Sites, it’s even more important for you to engage your workforce. • Let’s face it, this isn’t your first time badgering employees for things (see Open Enrollment, Employee Surveys and Best Place to Work surveys in that order). • THE PROBLEM IS YOU FACTOR: HIGH • You’re Rationalizing
  10. Our 4-Step Playbook For How to Engage on Reputation Sites Like Glassdoor and Become a Better HR Marketer…
  11. Step 1: Claim Company Profile and Maximize Your Presence… • Odds are that most of you listening haven’t claimed your free employer account at any of the reputation sites... • THIS JUST IN: They create sites for any company they’re aware of. That means even if you haven’t created the account, it exists. • You have to claim the account to get info correct and use whatever free features are present, and most importantly, to respond to reviews as a company rep.
  12. Step 2: Designate an HR Pro on Your Team to Respond to Reviews of Any Type… • Company reputation sites are only Rant Sites if you refuse to engage… • Your engagement strategy must include having someone on your team be a cultural customer service rep. • Pick the person on the HR team with the best skills in this area. • Make them responsible for being the person to respond to all reviews – good and bad. • Let’s talk about the skills that person needs to have. • PS – Let’s talk about the Bully Effect and how it goes away if you employ this strategy.
  13. Step #3: Campaign Time – Create Programs to Encourage Reviews Across Your Employee Base… • Hell, yeah! You aren’t just sitting around waiting for negative reviews to happen. • The smart Talent leader is going to run campaigns internally to encourage employees of all types to write reviews on reputation sites. • Good, bad, somewhere in between – you don’t care. You just want activity. • Let’s face it, this isn’t your first time badgering employees for things (see Open Enrollment, Employee Surveys and Best Place to Work surveys - in that order). • Let’s talk timing, recurring quiet periods, etc.
  14. Step #4: Start Weaving Reputation Sites Into The Rest of Your Employment Branding Strategy… • Once you start building a presence on any company reputation site, you have to become a marketer that the 3rd party info is available. • Answer the following question: Where do you share links to your career site? • That’s where you should be promoting a robust presence on reputation sites like Glassdoor. • Email signatures, ATS messaging, etc. • Another great marketing strategy – start featuring positive reviews in your job descriptions, email campaigns, etc – anywhere that supports HTML.
