Taking preliminary steps to design a plan to improve Employer Branding for your organization.

Introduction

No longer the new fad or trend, Employer Brand is quickly becoming a strategic staple for organisations hungry to solve talent challenges. It is necessary that organisations define a clear employer branding strategy, review brand promises, people-practices, and organisational resources, to ensure they deliver both internally and externally.

A strong employer brand lends an organisation a significant competitive edge in recruiting, retaining, and developing potential and existing employees. It is a differentiator, aimed at building engagement and loyalty through identity.

It is employee experiences that get amplified into what the organisation gets known for. So, identifying and implementing the Employee Value Proposition (EVP) would enable an organisation to become the “Employer of Choice”.

An organisation’s solid Employer Branding Strategy would treat its potential and existing employees like its customers, and actively promote the organisation to stand out among its competitors.  A strategic approach would also employ relevant metrics to monitor progress.

Employer branding is not age- or size-sensitive. It also applies to start-ups. In fact, it is one of the important talent tools for start-ups, which lack name recognition and are perceived as riskier than established organisations.

Closer to home, Singapore’s employer branding landscape is trending. As Singapore leads the way in social media penetration in South East Asia with 83% of the population on social media, this reflects the changing dynamics between employers, employees, and prospective employees. Lessons could be learned from some home-grown Employers of Choice, that continuously make changes in sync with these dynamic talent trends.
