Why employer brand?
Employer brand has long been a significant challenge for businesses as they look to attract, recruit and retain the very best people. But with wide-scale hiring freezes, it’s a mistake to think that your EVP is playing a lesser role in securing talent right now. Results from our global Covid-19 HR survey suggest that employee retention, engagement and cost reduction are top of the priority list right now.
The pandemic has shone a light on one of businesses' most valuable assets - talent. Now is the time to reflect and start building your employer brand, one that will give you a competitive advantage for tomorrow. But how do you do it?
