What is an Indeed Company Page?
Indeed Company Pages gives job seekers an overview of your company culture, work environment, mission and values, and benefits/perks. It’s a way to build a strong employer identity that motivates potential candidates to apply. In fact, job seekers that visit your company page are, on average, 2.5x more likely to apply to your jobs.*

Indeed Company Pages features
Here are some of the key features of Indeed Company Pages you can start taking advantage of to attract quality candidates:
Employee ratings and reviews
Interested applicants will want to learn more about what it’s like to work at your company. Your Company Page allows current and former employees to review and rate their experiences as well as your employee ratings, and provides a customized space for company descriptions and photos. Encourage your current employees to leave honest reviews to give job seekers a closer look at your company before they decide to apply.
You can also respond to reviews on your Indeed Company Page, whether it’s to thank reviewers or publicly reply to comments.
The Snapshot section of your Company Page provides a high-level overview of how Indeed users view your company (e.g., ratings, reviews, happiness scores), as well as an About the company section that you can customize.
This section may include your Work Happiness Score — a survey taken by employees that reveals how satisfied employees are at your company. Employees can rate your company on factors like belonging, flexibility, appreciation, growth, feeling well-managed, etc. The Work Happiness Score will only show up on your Indeed Company Page once at least 20 surveys have been taken for your company (10 in the UK and Canada).
In the About the company section, add your company description, company logo and a link to your website. You can also add some details about your work culture and company values (e.g., collaborative, flexible). Remember, job seekers typically look for alignment between their own values and a company’s values to identify the right job opportunities.

Check out this article on how to write a job description to make sure you’re including the right salary and benefits details that may appear on your Company Page.
Your Indeed Company page will also pull all of your open job postings on Indeed (as well as any jobs found across the internet for your company) and list them out so they’re easily searchable for candidates. You can also connect your ATS if you have one to display all of your open positions.
In short, when you build or even revisit and adjust your Company Pages, you’ll get to proactively market your company (as well as specific positions) in ways that appeal to job seekers looking to work at a company like yours.
