Employer BrandingIt’s not how I expected” – is that what your new recruits say?

Employer BrandingWhen you recruit, you tell them how great working for you will be. Are they disappointed when they arrive? Surprised? Or even shocked? Does that difference lead to poor engagement, low levels of customer service, higher absence, and rapid staff turnover?

If so, you need to take action to improve your employer brand (the perception existing and potential staff have of you as an employer).

Understanding and managing your employer brand is a key tool you can use to rapidly and sustainably improve HR, recruitment and many other operations within your organisation.

Find out why your employer brand matters and how you can improve it, at this expert lead training workshop.

Through leveraging these opportunities, HR can substantially increase its credibility and contribution, and the impact it has on the organisations it works within.
