There has been a paradigm shift in the relationship between candidates and employers. With the onset of the digital age, today’s candidates come with a whole new set of demands before choosing to commit to a company. The definition of “good company” is constantly being redefined.
For example, having a strong salary package may not be enough to attract the best candidate. Candidates want their future employers to have both a good work culture and strong value system.
For an organization to attract the best talent available, employer brand is their most crucial weapon. Many organizations have already inculcated the employer brand concept, in bits and pieces. The next step is to bring all these pieces together.
Here are five distinct ways an organization can get the most from their employer brand:
#1 Employers can take the fundamental step to define who they are, what their value systems are, and build a great work culture.
#2 Just like the way a marketer does a customer segmentation, an employer must segment potential candidates into various categories in order to get the candidates’ applications reviewed properly.
#3 Candidates look for employers with whom they are able to align their lives. With that mind, employers must deliver that experience to make candidates comfortable and efficient at their work.
#4 Employers must consider their employer brand not only for hiring the best talent but also for retaining the best talent.
#5 Your employer brand should hover around the candidate as the focal point at all given times.
Each of these points presents both challenges and opportunities. If you want to win the battle for top talent in your industry, you may want to consider making some changes.
