kununu launches two new features: Q&A and “Helpful” Thumbs-up Button
The day is finally here. The kununu team, both in Vienna and Boston, have worked so hard to bring two new features to the kununu platform.
Today, in the US, we are announcing a beta program to test the latest features that will better enable a two-way dialogue between employers and potential candidates. These new features give both companies and job seekers the opportunity to have their voices heard, asking and answering questions in real-time.
Here’s a peak at what they’ll look like:
kununu has found through extensive research, alongside its industry partners, that internal survey data collected within companies doesn’t truly map to what external review sites publish. And in turn, reviews sites miss the mark by providing information that is authentic and thoughtful in nature.
The new features on the kununu platform we’re announcing today aim to address these facts by improving the depth of information available and giving job seekers workplace insights that matter. kununu also provides companies with a platform to be open and transparent to potential candidates and build their employer brand in the process.
The latest features include:
- Question and Answer: Job seekers now have access to a thread of knowledge and the option to post questions that may not be answered through reviews and profile content. Current and formers employees along with company representatives are alerted and can respond to these questions in order to help job seekers learn more about the companies they want to apply to.
- “Helpful” Thumbs-up Button: Each question and answer will have a “helpful” thumbs-up feature to give users the option up vote responses and questions that they believe is important to a job seeker. As a user, one can scroll through what others have asked and shared and up vote answers to signify the most thoughtful responses. Over time, a company can use this information to inform their profile content and what they should prioritize in terms of culture, benefits, perks and more.
“We believe in the power of diverse opinions and perspectives in order to get a true view of an employer and we want to ensure this knowledge is available to all job hunters in order to make a better workplace for all,” said Moritz Kothe, CEO, kununu.
These features are currently being tested by a selection of current customers in our early beta program and will be available to all profiles by the end of 2017.
