Editorial guidelines

Hiring is more than a job posting. Indeed supports businesses at all times, so the Employer Resource Library covers the entire employee lifecycle. Whether you’re gearing up to hire your first employee or retain workers across a large company, we create content to answer your biggest questions—including the ones you don’t know yet to ask.


Our team updates articles for accuracy or to add additional content or more recent data. When we update older articles with newer information, we note when the article was updated. Older content may be removed or redirected to newer articles when it’s no longer relevant or accurate.

Advertising and contributor policy

The Indeed Employer Resource Library does not engage in affiliate marketing. If a company or individual is mentioned in an article, we’ve included it to educate readers on that specific topic. It is not an endorsement.

If you are a subject matter expert and would like to share your insights with our audience, please send us an email at resource-library@indeed.com to see our guidelines for guest contributions.
