Why employees’ review are helpful in a candidates’ job search

Engage employees and deserve all the positive things they say about the company. Good employee reviews will send you to the top of the candidates’ job search list.

To be the best version of yourself, listen discerningly to what others have to say. This applies not only to your personal self but to your company as well. As a form of social currency, reviews of employees are one of your company’s most attractive features.

Show your employees love and give them a platform to review their positive work experience on Company Profile on JobStreet. By contributing their reviews, you can further boost your chances of attracting the right candidates to the #JobsThatMatter at your company.

Here is a rundown of three ways employees’ company reviews are fundamental for your talent sourcing solutions.

1. Demonstrate how your company fulfills the needs of employees 

Your most important resources are your employees and it is appropriate that they feel important, rewarded, and satisfied in the workplace. After all, good employees are indicators of good management.

From fulfilling personal career goals to providing rewarding benefits, positive reviews communicate the ways in which your company addresses the professional and personal needs of employees. This provides a benchmark for potential candidates who share the same goals as current employees therefore reinforcing their decision to apply for a job at your company.

2. Illustrate a positive company culture

More than work processes, a good and nurturing company culture is a prime consideration. First, let us define company culture. This is the set behavior and common attitude of the employees in a particular company.

Potential candidates consider cultural fit in assessing the prospect of working with a company. Employee reviews can help communicate the ways in which your company integrates inclusion principles; work-life balance; employee-support, compensation, and benefits, work-from-home support, and flexibility in work arrangement into its culture.

3. Communicate employee happiness

High morale in the workplace attracts top talent. Good employees would definitely want to work for top-notch employers. Moreover, employee retention is the goal. It is not healthy for businesses to have high employee turnover since training and termination are bad for morale and office economics. A good indicator of employee satisfaction? The desire of employees to remain and ultimately retire with your company.

Ultimately, job satisfaction is the driver behind employees who not only do their work well. In fact, a study by the University of Oxford found the happier employees are more productive.

More than 8 million applicants are searching for jobs monthly through JobStreet and in turn reading what other employees say about your company and thus factoring in their decision to apply.

The number of stars that employees give the company in their reviews provides an indicator of employee happiness that could work wonders for attracting talent.

Less than stellar company reviews are an opportunity to address areas for improvement. But when a healthy corporate culture and respectful camaraderie between managers and employees is in place, positive employee reviews will naturally emerge. This in turn will boost your chances of attracting the right talents!

How Company Profile Works

What can you find in Jobstreet’s Company Profiles and Reviews? Here are four user-friendly features that allow your employees to easily compose reviews.

  • Overall rating from 1-5

  • Salary and recommendation rating

  • Freshness and relevance ranking of employees review

  • Filtering of reviews according to job title or rating

A quick summary of positive and negative comments is just a click away.

These reviews are important points to consider, but take them with a grain of salt. Refer to your core objectives as a company before taking action. It is not mandatory to resolve all issues raised by your employees in one go; address only those that deem pertinent to your key priorities
