Employees are fast becoming central to the process of brand
building and their behavior can either reinforce a brand’s advertised
values or, if inconsistent with these values, undermine the credibility
of your messages. Employer branding is a whole of business
concept concerned with the attraction, engagement and retention
initiatives targeted at enhancing your company’s employer brand.
The contest amongst employers to attract and retain talented workers
takes place in a world where changes in the political, economic,
social and technological environments and concerns about a
company’s environmental footprint is driving widespread change in
employment patterns. Today, competition for the best employees
is as fierce as competition for customers and market share.

strategists and corporate leaders to create an inspiring learning
experience in the growing field of employer branding.
Our emphasis is on assisting you to develop leadership,
communication, problem solving and team building skills, which

issues of management in a changing business environment.
In selecting students we look for high quality people with the potential

Whilst practical in orientation, your learning experience will include
networking with like minded professionals around the world to
support a solid theoretical grounding in employer brand leadership.
Organizations that can attract and retain the best minds by
leveraging a unique, relevant and distinctive employer brand
will have a competitive edge in the marketplace.
We look forward to welcoming you and wish
you the very best with your studies.
