  23. Why Employer Branding Matters Strategically develop a cohesive employment brand reflecting vision for the future and long-term talent management needs Engaged Workers Increased Productivity and customer service Greater Profitability SOURCE: GALLUP CONSULTING, “EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT: WHAT’S YOUR ENGAGEMENT RATIO?” Engaged Employees have 51% lower turnover and 18% higher productivity. Engaged workers result in 12% higher profitability Employer Branding begins during recruitment processes and feeds into employee management Having employees live and breathe your employment brand is the best way to raise brand awareness 23
  24. Influence Your Employer Brand In The Right Direction SOURCE: PWC’S BREAKING OUT OF THE TALENT SPIRAL REPORT • All employers have an employer brand. You may not be aware of it and actively own it, but it is out there and it influences whether talent choose you as an ideal employer or not. • To influence the employer brand, employers needs an Employer Value Proposition (EVP) targeted to internal and external talent groups. • This proposition needs to be attractive, true, credible, distinct and sustainable. In order to achieve this, it is extremely important that the EVP is developed using in-depth research covering current employees, management and external talent groups. 24
  25. Employer Branding Is A Strategic, Long-Term Process To what extent does your long-term employer branding strategy help you: 38% 25% 22% 22% 18% 17% 15% 41% 45% 39% 38% 37% 39% 40% 13% 20% 26% 29% 32% 30% 30% Attract the right talent More consistent communications Retain the right talent Define right people for culture fit Build consistent employee experience Increase your knowledge of talent market/segment preferences Build engagement and increase performance Very Important 4 3 2 Not Important 25
  26. Risks Of Not „Localizing‟ Your EVP • Spending time and money communicating things that are not attractive to your target groups • Having your communication diluted by contradicting messages • Messaging that is not distinct from competitors • Disappointing new hires when expectations are not met • Risking sustainability due to a lack of buy-in from management and staff • Creating a negative influence on EVP as current and past employees/interns communicate with prospective candidates 26
  27. Developing Your Employer Value Proposition ProfileIdentity Image But what should be in the middle? The Employer Value Proposition is the tool you use to shape your Employer Brand Profile “Who you want to be” What you are trying to communicate Identity The image, career and opportunities your company can offer “Who you really are” Image The external view and position of your company “Who people think you are” UNIVERSUM YEARLY STUDENT SURVEYS 27
  28. Developing Your Employer Value Proposition WHAT IS THE EVP? The EVP is a unique set of offerings, associations and values that will positively influence the most suitable target candidates and the internal target groups. The EVP provides attributes and themes that can be used as a long-term foundation and framework for your branding and creative approach. The EVP development is strategic WHAT IS IT NOT? The EVP is not a tag line or a visual expression. It is the underlying content that is then transformed into messages, ads and a communication strategy targeted at different talent groups and markets. The choice of words, images and channels will depend on the target group and might vary across markets. The EVP implementation is operational 28
  29. Need To Adapt Your EVP Select and define attributes to communicate as the global EVP as the core of the Employer Brand. Tweak and adjust the actual messages to communicate (the examples, stories and reason to believe etc.) for the target groups. Universum suggests to develop one EVP to be used on a global level and for all target groups and business units. However, market needs and internal differences between entities often require adjustments of the proposition.
  30. OUR APPROACH TO STRATEGIC EMPLOYER BRANDING Are your activities effective in building a strong brand? Are you attractive enough to meet your recruitment needs? What is important and relevant to your target groups? What makes an employer attractive? How do current employees see you? What are perceived as strengths and weaknesses? How can you improve your career website and ads? Is your message getting across as desired? What should you emphasize in the communication to maximize its effectiveness? Where is a repositioning needed to create your desired employer image? How should you communicate the employer offering to the target group? What channels are most effective? 30

We just felt we couldn‟t ask.‟ Herein lies the truth: what young workers want isn’t so different from what everyone else wants.
