Communicating an employer’s brand entails a lot more than merely having a careers page on your website and a LinkedIn company profile. All companies have a story to tell, not only about their products and services, but also about why they’re a great (or terrible) place to work. These stories sometimes lurk in the “below the surface” world of word-of-mouth, namely the mouths of employees, of ex-employees, of investors, and of executives. But companies can no longer afford to allow these stories to remain part of the enterprise’s collective subconscious. An employer brand disconnected from the companies other marketing messages, or worse yet ignored, represents real risk that can be experienced as an ever-increasing difficulty when it comes to attracting, hiring and retaining talented employees.
In this presentation, Todd Nilson, a 15-year recruiting consultant and social media strategist, will outline some leading practices for an effective employer branding approach:
