Glassdoor and Indeed announced today that they are joining forces to make it easier for employers to reach as many potential employees as possible. Employers will now be able to reach job seekers on both platforms through Indeed job advertising products. Also, in the fall, employers will be able to access reviews and ratings from both Glassdoor and Indeed within the Glassdoor Employer Center.
Glassdoor CEO, Christian Sutherland-Wong, said the sister companies developed this special offering to make it easier to find quality candidates.
“The combined strength of our two brands will help employers tell their story and hire quality candidates at scale easier,” Sutherland-Wong said.
Beginning this fall, employers will be able to access reviews and ratings from both Glassdoor and Indeed within the Glassdoor Employer Center.
