Glassdoor Rolls Out New Features to Rate Companies on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Job insights platform Glassdoor rolled out three new features Wednesday aimed at giving its users a clearer picture of diversity, equity and inclusion at companies they are searching.

The Harris Poll conducted a survey for Glassdoor of job seekers and employees to learn more about their perceptions of diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace, and its findings included:

  • Nearly one-half of Black (47%) and Hispanic (49%) respondents quit their jobs after witnessing or experiencing discrimination at work, compared with just 38% of white respondents.
  • 32% of respondents said they would not apply at a company with a lack of diversity among its workforce (41% of Blacks and 30% of whites).
  • 63% of respondents believe their employers should be doing more to increase diversity, with 71% of Black respondents feeling that way, 72% of Hispanics and 58% of whites.

Glassdoor responded by introducing new tools that enable employers to share their related commitments, programs and goals, including a dedicated section on their Glassdoor profiles where they can share their current demographic information.

The highlight of the three new features rolled out by Glassdoor Wednesday is the Diversity & Inclusion Rating, which became the sixth workplace factor rating available to employees.

Ratings are based on a five-point scale and appear alongside the five existing workplace factor ratings.

Glassdoor said employees across 12 companies had access to the Diversity & Inclusion Rating while it was in stealth mode, and this is how ratings turned out for those companies:
