Rankings cover ethnicity, gender identity, parental or caregiver status, disability, sexual orientation
Online job board Glassdoor is now allowing visitors to get a look at companies’ diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts.
Rankings for companies and CEOs include ratings by race/ethnicity, gender identity, parental or caregiver status, disability, sexual orientation and veteran status. Salaries are also broken out by gender identity and race/ethnicity.
For example, people can see how Black employees rate their company’s culture or career opportunities, or how LGBTQ+ employees rate their senior leadership.
“We are just beginning to understand the complexity that makes up the employee experience. 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,” says Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor CEO. “Increased workplace transparency can show us where we are strong and where we are weak. It can help jobseekers discover opportunities where they can thrive, and it can support employers in creating more equitable workplaces and communities.”
Since launching the demographic information sharing in the fall of 2020, Glassdoor has collected about 800,000 demographic insights from 187,000 employees at more than 3,300 companies.
The employers with the most demographic information shared include Walmart, Amazon, Target, Starbucks and AT&T.
While there’s been a big push around diversity and inclusion (D&I) in the workplace over the past few years, Canada still has a long way to go, according to a survey released last month.
Three-quarters (76 per cent) of employees and jobseekers feel that a diverse workforce is an important factor when evaluating companies and job offers, according to a Glassdoor report released in September 2020.
That number jumps to four in five among Black (80 per cent), Hispanic (80 per cent) and LGBTQ (79 per cent) jobseekers and employees, according to the survey of 2,745 U.S. adults.
Also, nearly half of Black (47 per cent) and Hispanic (49 per cent) jobseekers and employees have quit a job after witnessing or experiencing discrimination at work, compared with 38 per cent of white jobseekers and employees.
Employers are not doing enough to promote D&I in their workforce, with 76 per cent having no diversity or inclusion goals at all, according to a report released earlier this month.
