Ajax Workforce Marketing (Simplified Offerings)

  1. 1. April, 2014
  2. 2. WORKFORCEMARKETING.COM Ajax gets employees and employers working together on social media to tell a consistent company story.
  3. 3. WORKFORCEMARKETING.COM This makes processes impacted by employee conversations—like talent acquisition, talent retention, and even sales— more efficient.
  4. 4. WORKFORCEMARKETING.COM What differentiates Workforce Marketing from social media campaigns is a focus on resonance. Workforce Marketing Impact = Resonance x Reach Cost x Effort Making the brand meaningful to employees makes it easier for them to share the brand with their networks. Because employees are up to 6x more trusted than company spokespeople (2013 Edelman Trust Barometer), getting heard
 becomes easier. Reach without resonance? That’s spam. Resonance gets employees to self-identify with the message, making branding programs more sustainable and driving down overall costs.
  5. 5. WORKFORCEMARKETING.COM Case study: Oil & Gas 
 Why it works: Our opt-in approach modeled exactly how to use LinkedIn to solve a specific, important challenge for employees, with no distractions. Ajax was approached by a major oil and gas company to help it use LinkedIn to recruit more efficiently. Ajax assessed employee brand ambassadorship, across both recruiters and non-recruiters, and then implemented a 3-step program to engage employees. We achieved the following: • Voluntary use of brand messaging up 907% • Voluntary use of LinkedIn summaries/ current job descriptions up 268% • Voluntary use of keywords up 85% • Voluntary use of résumé jargon down 224% 0.0%$ 10.0%$ 20.0%$ 30.0%$ 40.0%$ 50.0%$ 60.0%$ Pre$ Post$ Average$ In$room$ Remote$ Not$in$session$
  6. 6. WORKFORCEMARKETING.COM Case study: eCommerce Our data showed employees why brand advocacy is important, and how it could help them day-to-day. Getting buy-in on suggestions on how to use and optimize their LinkedIn profiles—such as writing a client-focused summary—flowed naturally from the findings. Ajax worked with a major retailer to help it recruit technical talent in the Bay Area more effectively. Working with business leaders and technical staff across departments, Ajax: • Increased overall brand advocacy 67%, from 39% to 65%. • Increased voluntary use of company messaging nearly 300%, from 15% to 59%.

  7. 7.
