Glassdoor, major job and recruitment site, has recently broken into the markets of Singapore, Hong Kong and New Zealand through localised sites and apps.
A physical presence hasn't yet turned up in Singapore, but the word marks its foray into APAC, on top of the existing local sites in India and Australia.
Headquartered in California and founded in 2007, Glassdoor operates as a part of Japan-based Recruit Holdings’ growing HR technology business segment. It provides a platform for job listings, company reviews, CEO approval ratings, salary reports, interview questions, and more.
John Lamphiere, Vice President and Managing Director, Glassdoor International, said: “Glassdoor has always appealed to a wide global audience and with increased focus on Singapore, we are looking to make the Glassdoor experience for people and businesses in these locations even more valuable.”
Glassdoor uses a ‘give-to-get’ model, offering free access to all data once someone contributes their own content, such as a company review or salary report. This model helps reduce the likelihood of extremely positive or negative reviews and encourages more balanced company ratings.
Currently, reviews and insights are hosted for over 830,000 companies in more than 190 countries. The current average company rating is 3.43 on a five-point scale. Glassdoor also partners with 7,800 employers, while there are 175,000 employers using a Glassdoor Free Employer Account.
Visiting Singapore for the launch event is Christian Sutherland-Wong, Chief Operating Officer, Glassdoor, who spoke exclusively to Human Resources on the development:
