Barometer is a platform that aggregates employee feedback reviews from external review sites, such as Glassdoor and Indeed. We analyze each review using a combined technology and human approach in order to uncover insights that a machine might miss. This approach allows us to help companies unlock essential employee data to help recruit and retain top talent from around the world.
Barometer helps you gain insight on how invested employees are in your company by analyzing your employee reviews. We do this by using human analysts and technology to better understand the sentiment behind the language conveyed in each review. We also flag high importance reviews that are either insightful or high risk to help you prioritize problems that need immediate attention.
Barometer is for companies who want to use insights from their employee reviews to help build a better employer brand.
We monitor Glassdoor and Indeed, but we can also help you access other employee review sites on a one-off basis.
Yes, as long as the review is in English, we are also able to reach overseas reviews.
Your employee reviews can enhance or diminish your company reputation to potential candidates. Reviews influence how candidates compare you with your competitors, your ability to recruit top candidates, and your retention rates. They also help your HR team address concerns within the workplace to take employee satisfaction to an all time high. A happy workplace is a good workplace.
Barometer applies the same rigorous human analysis used on your reviews to those of your key competitors. Analysis of reviews for 5 key competitors are included and additional competitors can be tracked for a fee. Additionally, the platform allows you to benchmark yourself on key metrics against the Fortune 500, Glassdoor’s Best Places To Work, and other groups.
Human analysts are important because they can identify the sentiment behind words in a stream of text. Although machine learning is a powerful tool, it doesn’t always pick up accurate sentiment, especially surrounding figures of speech and metaphors.
We can include all your existing reviews from Glassdoor and Indeed for an additional project fee or include new reviews as they come in depending on your preference.
We trust Glassdoor and Indeed’s methodology for ascertaining that a reviewer is a real employee of the company. We use the information provided to identify information such as whether they worked full time or part time. However, our analysts can go further than these sites in parsing out specific employee populations. We can generally distinguish between corporate and retail employees, for instance, using metadata like job titles.
While there isn’t a way to respond to reviews directly from the Barometer platform, we provide links to the individual reviews so that you can easily respond on the review site.
Barometer doesn’t incorporate social media sites or ratings sites meant for customer experience reviews. However, our parent company, PublicRelay, offers social media tracking and analysis that can be combined with Barometer data for more holistic brand awareness.
There's a lot to learn from employee reviews, including the reasons employees leave, which specific departments are having issues, and unexpected strengths. Check out our Solution pages or schedule a preview for more info!
