  • We use your talent brand reach and talent brand engagement to measure your talent brand index. Talent brand index measures your ability to engage the potential candidates who know about you. It measures your attractiveness among external talent. Your talent brand index is x%, and we will use this number to benchmark and compare your employer brand to peers, over time, and across functions and geographies.
  • Finally, we can help you track your employer brand over time. Brand is not something that changes overnight– rather, it is something that needs to be cultivated over time. As you invest in your employer brand, LinkedIn can help you assess the effectiveness of your employer branding efforts both on and off LinkedIn– using the talent brand index.Let’s pause here and review what we’ve talked about:- How are these results in line or different from your expectations? Why? - How is your employer brand aligned compared to your recruiting priorities?  - How is your brand enhancing or inhibiting your success in hiring? 
  • We can measure your talent brand index vs your talent peers. Your competitors to the left of the graph have the easiest time engaging talent– talent shows high interest in them. Your talent peers on the right of this graph have a harder time engaging talent, because of their weaker employer brand.The stronger your brand, the easier it is for you to attract the right candidates to your roles.
