The Time is Now to Invest in Employer Branding
In just a few short years, the entire job market shifted. It wasn't just the pandemic; there had been slower changes happening before March of 2020. Today we're in a candidate-driven market, and it's time to make your company as attractive as possible to keep top talent interested. The time is now to invest in your employer branding. So, what is branding, and how does it help? Here are some tips to improve your employer's brand and attract top talent.
Analyze Your Company Culture
Successful employee branding starts by taking a long look at who you are as a company. This introspection can help you determine your company's core values, mission statement, and overall environment. This is also an opportunity to see where you might have blind spots that could be reevaluated and improved.
Promote Your Employer Brand
An employer brand is all about attracting top talent, so it won't be effective without making your brand front and center in your recruitment process. Include information about your employer brand in your open jobs and online through social media. You want to show potential employees what your company has to offer them.
Develop an Employee Advocacy Program
Your employees are your greatest asset and best brand ambassadors. Create an employee advocacy program that empowers your current team to promote your employer brand. Encourage them to share positive experiences online so others can see your company as a great place to work. Make this organic and authentic.
Leverage Social Media
Social media is the best way to get the word out about your employer brand. Social media doesn't only reach potential employees; it is also the face of your company for new customers and the general public. By creating an overall positive reputation online, talent will find you and understand the corporate culture.
Work with a Staffing Partner
Another way to bring top talent into your organization is to work with a staffing partner. Your recruiters can use your company culture and employer brand to reach out to individuals who will be a good match for your open positions.
