PARIS (France) – In just one year, Viadeo has collected nearly 4 million reviews and ratings of employees on their business. A great success for the professional social network that did not expect such a strong enthusiasm from its members. Based on this wealth of information, Viadeo publishes its first results in the form of studies and rankings that will be valuable indicators for its members and customers in their recruitment process.

Remember that 70% of French companies are represented on Viadeo, which is the recruiters’ * preferred network.

This way, Viadeo allows its 11 million members to give a transparent, objective and useful opinion which helps community members find the company and the job of their dreams. In total, more than 20 criteria divided into 4 categories are taken into account in the assessment of Employers: Working conditions, Career, Business Management and Corporate Culture. Members also have the opportunity to give an overall rating for the company, to recommend their company or not to potential candidates and to indicate their confidence or lack thereof in its management.
This transparent scoring system by employees is the most reliable way to know if a company the members are interested in, or who has their eyes on them, matches their expectations and their professional mindset.

According to a recent study by Viadeo on the quality of life at work **, if almost 60% of those surveyed rate their company above 6/10 on average, only 40% think their company truly cares about their employees’ well being at work. For businesses, it is also the best way to control and optimize in real time their employer brand to attract top talent.

Today Viadeo announces the top 5 French companies best rated by their employees in France, on a volume of significant rating:

1. Decathlon : 3,95/5 (1066 employees who gave a score to their business)
2. Orange : 3,92/5 (918 employees who gave a score to their business)
3. SNCF : 3,73/5 (674 employees who gave a score to their business)
4. Carrefour : 3,46/5 (employees who gave a score to their business)
5. Auchan : 3,45/5 (761 employees who gave a score to their business)

Each month, Viadeo will unveil the ranking of the most attractive French companies per region. The first region in the spotlight will be the Pays de la Loire. After that, others will follow monthly and a large national comparative released later this year.

“Companies’ assessments by their employees are a major strategic pillar for Viadeo. Our ambition is not only to provide our members with opportunities, but also to ensure that they find companies that fits their mood, values and professional expectations. We would also make this product an alternative solutions to search jobs, in the same logic as an unsolicited application”, explains Alexandre Roucher (CPO Viadeo).

This “Reviews and ratings” option will soon be featured on the new jobs space available to Viadeo members, in order to boost employment in France. Announcement to follow shortly …
