It’s great being called out by Forbes as the #1 cloud computing company to work for and one of the best cloud-based enterprise software startups to work for in 2014, but we didn’t do it alone.
There are a lot of different factors that go into this ranking – our amazing employees, wonderful CEO, excellent company culture and our exceptional products. But in this competitive talent market, it would’ve been tougher to get the word out to prospective candidates without our awesome ally, Glassdoor.
In the past, some of our recruiting challenges have been differentiating our employer brand among the large players in the space, driving candidate awareness to our strong company ratings and hiring the usually hard-to-fill sales and engineering positions in the highly competitive Bay Area market.
Bev Daly, our Director of HR, says, “As a result of running targeted display ads throughout Glassdoor, we know we’re driving awareness and interest from candidates we want to attract.”
Within 6 months of using Glassdoor display ads:
- Increased candidate awareness by 74%, which reflects in the traffic to our Glassdoor profile.
- Successfully attracted targeted job titles, the top two being Account Executives and Inside Sales Representatives
- Glassdoor has become our #1 source of applications, with 54% of all applicants sourced from the site
Glassdoor is a great outlet for our employees to review our company and an excellent reference for people looking to join the FinancialForce.com team.
These are just some of the great things our employees have to say about working at FinancialForce.com, and Glassdoor gives them the platform to do so.
