We all know the traditional branding, focused on customers and improving their conception of the company. But we find that the importance of Employer Branding is increasing, this is focused on the company’s employees themselves.
Employer branding, what is it?
Companies always need to improve their workforces and be able to count on the best professionals, and these potential workers increasingly have more tools to know the inner workings and relationships of any company and, therefore, choose where they are interested in working.
Employer Branding is to value the brand of your company as an employee. Increasingly, the company’s image is becoming more and more important not only for customers but also for employees who pass it on to potential customers and candidates.
Normally we would think that a concept like this would only apply to large multinationals with huge human resources budgets, but the reality is that it is important for any company to take care of the image of its employees, retain talent and improve its candidates.
Employer Branding in your company
There are several ways to foster this perception of the employee, depending on your company, sector and resources you can target employer branding in different ways.
One option is to create a reward system for your employees. Offer rewards for personal effort, in a clear, understandable and equitable way for all employees. It must always be oriented to meet the real expectations of employees.
On the other hand, the generation of branded content aimed at the employees themselves can give a big boost to the company’s reputation as a place to work. The internal audience is one of the most reliable prescribers and if you manage to create content that employees spread, you will be able to see the benefits in the very short term.
Another way would be to take care of the candidate’s experience, taking into account all the points of contact between them and the company, regardless of whether they join or not. In this way the candidates will have a positive opinion of the company and will speak well and leave good evaluations, favoring Employer Branding.
