For many people, employer branding means various things, but to simplify it, it is how your company promotes itself in a unique way to attract talent. This may be through storytelling, visual elements, benefit packages, company culture or all of these combined.

In the recent 50 best places to work Australian report almost 80% of organisations in the study considered employee retention as their biggest challenge.

Employer branding has been used as a secondary tool to promote jobs, but all of that is about to change. With more companies investing time and money into promoting their unique values to scale their business and attract talent, employer branding is pushing to the forefront of recruitment.

By executing it correctly, job seekers will begin to recognise why your company is a great place to work and why they should be applying for your roles.

So by investing in your employer brand what benefits can you expect to see?

Buy-in from Current Staff

Employer branding is a hands-on undertaking. There is no point deciding to invest in your company’s employer brand if you are only willing to spend money on it and no time. Get your employees involved by sharing stories, recording testimonials and allowing them to become your brand ambassadors.

Increase Quality of Candidates

In any size company, HR professionals know that attracting quality candidates have become increasingly competitive. Using your employer brand allows you to attract candidates who are currently employed and allows them to submit their CV for future roles optimising your talent pool and recruiting skill candidates.

Enhance reputation and amplify your organisation’s employer branding to industry professionals. Health Industry Hub offers a wealth of content in the only one-stop-hub to connect and engage Pharma, MedTech and Biotech industry professionals. Ask us how.

Improve Employee Retention

The main focus of creating a strong employer brand is to strengthen your hiring efforts and have an impact on improving your employee retention. In fact, companies who prioritise their employer branding usually see a double digit increase in retention.

This is best achieved by ensuring the employer brand is reflected throughout the full lifecycle of employees. For example, if one of your values is to help develop and grow your employees, make sure they have ample opportunity to advance their skills.

Get Employees Excited

Employer branding allows you to easily align the goals of both employer and employees. Employers want their business to grow and be successful, and employees want to continue to push their careers forward. By creating the right branding you can easily align these interests and create a culture of happy and engaged employees that will help to drive innovation and productivity.

Happy employees ultimately contribute to the success of your business. Creating a culture that focuses on your employees, making quality hires and developing that top talent goes hand in hand with building an appealing employer brand.

Get People Talking

It may seem obvious, but strong employer branding doesn’t just help attract talent. It can also help you generate new prospects and clients. A well-crafted employer brand leads to a positive reputation among the wider business community. The public will have a better understanding of your company’s mission and values adding another touch-point for prospective clients.
