GLASSDOOR LAUNCHES ADVANCED FILTERS TO FIND COMPANIES HIGHLY RATED FOR WORK/LIFE BALANCE, DIVERSITY & INCLUSION AND MORE

Glassdoor | October 11, 2022 | Read time : 05:00 min

GLASSDOOR LAUNCHES ADVANCED FILTERS TO FIND COMPANIES
Glassdoor, the worldwide leader on insights about jobs and companies, today launched advanced filters for Company Explorer, a tool that allows people to easily search for companies based on location, industry, company size, overall company rating and more. With the new advanced filters, users can customize their job search by workplace factor ratings such as Work/Life Balance, Culture & Values, Diversity & Inclusion and more, or by overall ratings from demographic groups including Race/Ethnicity, Gender Identity, Sexual Orientation and more. The advanced filtering capabilities allow job seekers to easily search for companies based on millions of insights publicly available on Glassdoor.

According to a new Glassdoor survey conducted by The Harris Poll1, 43% of U.S. employees have witnessed or experienced discrimination (e.g., racism, ageism, sexism, homophobia) at work and 30% say their current employer does not match their values. When it comes to searching for a job and company to work for, 36% of employees ages 18-44 say diversity & inclusion policies/practices are an important factor. Glassdoor's new advanced filtering capabilities can help match job seekers with companies that align to their unique experiences and values.

"Glassdoor is deeply committed to leveraging our products and resources to help achieve equity in and out of the workplace, We know that each individual job seeker has different values driving their job search, from healthier work/life balance to career growth, to being able to compare ratings of different employee demographic groups. The new advanced filters for Company Explorer aim to make it easier for people to uncover companies that align with their unique values and experiences, and can help them make even more informed decisions about where to work."

- Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor Chief Executive Officer

The advanced filters come at a time when more than 1 in 3 employees (35%) believe it would be difficult to find an employer that aligns with their values. These advanced filters help job seekers expand their company search in two core areas:
  • By Workplace Factor Ratings: Glassdoor users can search for companies by filtering Glassdoor's workplace factor ratings. These workplace factor ratings include Overall Rating, Career Opportunities, Compensation and Benefits, Culture & Values, Diversity & Inclusion, Senior Management or Work/Life Balance. These advanced filters by workplace factor ratings are available in the U.S. and across all 23 Glassdoor global domains.
  • By Employee Demographic Ratings: Glassdoor users can search for companies by filtering overall ratings from demographics groups. These demographic groups include Race/Ethnicity, Gender, Parent of Family Caregiver, People with Disabilities, Sexual Orientation or Veterans. These advanced filters by overall ratings from demographics groups are only available in the U.S.

When users apply the advanced filters to their search, the results will display the companies that closely match their search criteria. For instance, if filtering companies by LGBTQ+ employee ratings, the results will display companies that are highly rated according to LGBTQ+ employees and also have a high number of current job openings on Glassdoor.

According to the Glassdoor survey, nearly 3 in 4 (71%) of employees say work/life balance is an important workplace factor when it comes to searching for jobs and companies to work for, and we're seeing companies like Salesforce, Johnson & Johnson and Hubspot rank highly for work/life balance when using these advanced filters. The survey also revealed that 70% of employees say compensation & benefits is an important workplace factor when searching for jobs and companies to work for, followed by career growth (58%) and company culture & values (44%).

Triton Benefits & HR Solutions Delivers Affordable Group Health Insurance to Companies Who Struggle to Meet Participation Requirements

Triton Benefits & HR Solutions | November 09, 2022

Triton Benefits & HR Solutions, a national employee benefits broker and HR consulting firm, is helping small businesses achieve their employee retention goals. An employer-sponsored group medical plan is the most sought-after employee benefit. Unfortunately, due to high participation requirements, many organizations are not able to provide a bona fide, major medical plan to their most valuable asset, their employees. As the end of the year draws near, Employee Health Benefits are at the forefront of HR departments. With the 2023 enrollment season on the horizon, many small businesses face complex challenges. A recent study by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that businesses with fewer than 50 employees are less likely to offer an employer-sponsored group medical plan to their employees. As a result of unrealistic participation requirements, many small businesses struggle to find affordable, quality healthcare coverage for their workers. Triton Benefits & HR Solutions deliver affordable group health plans that have traditionally been nearly impossible to underwrite when low employee participation is a challenge "If you're looking for a group medical plan, and only 5 out of 50 employees want to participate, typically no insurance carrier wants to write your policy. However, Triton offers businesses in these situations a 'Golden Ticket' with an insurance solution when only a small portion of the employees are looking to opt into the company's benefits plan," - Triton's CEO, Steve Rosenthal Triton manages over $500 Million in group health insurance premiums and works with all major carriers nationwide. Their ability to leverage long-standing relationships with major health insurance carriers and their in-depth industry knowledge to create unique and customized healthcare options sets them apart from other employee benefits brokers. In addition, they offer a concierge-style service which means they are extremely hands-on with every client relationship and provide a personalized touch that is hard to find anywhere else. If you're a business facing a low participation issue among your workforce and need quality and affordable Group Health Benefits, don't hesitate to contact Triton Benefits & HR Solutions by visiting their website or calling them at 1-800-OK-TRITON. About Triton Benefits & HR Solutions Triton Benefits & HR Solutions is a national group health benefits brokerage and human resource consulting firm. Triton is committed to helping organizations navigate the complexities of employee benefits and human resources. The company has offices in New York, Texas, and Philadelphia, headquartered in Woodbridge, NJ.
