主题/Title:Employees’Strategic Disclosure on Social Media: Evidence from Glassdoor Reviews during Contract Renegotiations


内容简介/ Abstract:

This study provides the first evidence that employees strategically disclose workplace information on social media. Using a difference-in-differences framework, we show that firms receive lower Glassdoor employer ratings in the months leading up to the expiration of labor contracts than at other times. The decline in Glassdoor ratings is more pronounced for labor unions with greater organizational power, firms with potentially higher reputational concerns, and firms with more financial resources. These results suggest that employees use the threat of low Glassdoor ratings to enhance their bargaining positions during contract renegotiations.

Furthermore, we show that lower Glassdoor ratings during renegotiation periods are associated with better employee negotiation outcomes. The ratings continue to decline after unsuccessful renegotiations relating to employee welfare. Finally, we find that Glassdoor ratings during renegotiations are more informative of actual workplace practices, suggesting that employees get better deals by disclosing information at a strategic time rather by disclosing distorted information.
