Updated 24 February, 2020

We have two product updates that will make "telling your brand story" on Glassdoor better than ever. These updates will help you put the right information in front of the right audience to capture their attention. Both products are available to EP Select customers.

  • Affiliated Profiles:  Will allow you to group existing profiles of affiliated companies together on Glassdoor.
    • Represents your corporate family with a brand new Organization Structure tab.
    • Encourages discovery of your affiliates with visuals and links across pages so job seekers can easily navigate between profiles. 
  • Nested Profiles:  Will allow the ability to segment existing user generated content, brand, and job content by specific divisions recognized by Glassdoor. 
    • Allows you to create segmented profiles underneath your main profile to represent your unique company structure. 
    • Showcases reviews, jobs, and branding features by divisions recognized by Glassdoor for the right audience. 


When will Affiliated and Nested Profiles be live?

How will Affiliated / Nested Profiles affect my company's ability to receive a Glassdoor award? (ie. Top CEOs and BPTW)

User-added imageUser-added image
  • The Nested Profiles will not affect your company's ability to receive a Glassdoor award. The methodology will not change since all awards will still be calculated on a per-profile level.
  • Child profiles still count as under the parent profile so the award will be calculated off the parent profile. 

How can I get set up?

User-added imageUser-added image
  • You can either work with your CSM to get your Affiliated / Nested Profiles set up or you can manage it yourself in the Employer Center.
