With six million workers in the United Kingdom not satisfied in their job , it is likely that many businesses will face increased issues with staff retention (particularly towards the tail-end of the recessional storm). Today see the launch of a new website designed to encourage employees to provide anonymous but genuine feedback on their employer in a controlled environment. rates companies on their employment practices and could prove to be an invaluable tool for businesses looking to improve staff retention or become a more desirable company to work for. The site will also offer an objective perspective to job seekers looking for an unbiased opinion of the company.

Employer Information provides employers with invaluable employee reaction to a number of questions about the way their company is run, allowing companies to celebrate their successes and, use the information positively where there are areas that could be improved.

Individual companies are rated on a five star point system, which is publicly available and can be viewed by current and potential employees, suppliers and work providers.

The GFK NOP found that satisfaction with an employer has a direct impact on staff retention, as 69 per cent of dissatisfied employees said they want to leave their current job within 12 months. Commenting on the launch of the site Ged Walsh, director at Employer Information said, “Employees that are unhappy at work will leave, so this is a perfect opportunity for employers to use this information positively to improve the way their company and their business operates.

The site’s strength lies in the fact that it is based on what staff actually say about their employers. This independent feedback is a powerful source of information for today’s discerning jobseekers. For employers that have invested in workplace engagement, a positive review offers real edge in today’s competitive recruitment marketplace.”

The identity of the employee providing the feedback is 100 per cent confidential and under no circumstances will an employee’s personal details be disclosed to any other party. To maintain the integrity of the site any employee wishing to provide their feedback will be required to register.

Employers are able to purchase a second tier of information, which will never include personal details but will provide more detail as to the ranking they receive in any given area plus any additional comments that employees are invited to make.
