3 Ways to Reimagine your Brand Stories and Talent Attraction Strategy

20 May 2021


There are many key considerations when creating a successful employer brand but the essentials can be split into three core areas; research, creative and targeting. Research is an essential part in ensuring the foundations of your employer brand to be built on, whilst creative helps you stand out, build an emotional connection, and tells your story in a way that sticks in people’s minds. But none of these amount to much unless you’re reaching the right (and best) audiences on the right channels, at the right time.

It’s vital that all employer brands blend authenticity with relevance and differentiation and during this interactive virtual event we’ll team case study presentations, with a roundtable discussion to hear how acting on these three key areas can help build global award-winning employer brands.

What’s being discussed
  • Using research and discovery methodologies to build an employer brand to believe in
  • Creating an employer brand story that’s globally consistent, yet locally flexible
  • Getting creative – how to strip back campaigns to get to the big idea
  • Connecting your culture, purpose and values to your target audience
  • How to create clear, consistent and compelling work
  • How to break the media contract cycle and take back control
  • Diversifying channel usage to reduce CPA (Cost Per Application)
  • …and much more!
