Employment Branding Courses , HR Practitioners Training

13 March 2020

An organization with an excellent employment brand will attract top talent and keep them. This session distinguishes employment brand from organizational brand and also distinguishes employment brand to internal brand. The session also describes how to establish and maintain an employment brand and influence how the organization is perceived by prospective or present employees.

Turnover is a major challenge in a full employment economy. One way to attract, develop and retain top talent is to cultivate an organization’s employment brand.

Without it, organizations may have trouble getting anyone to work for them. An employment brand answers the question "why do you work for us when you could work elsewhere?" A related question has to do with internal brand, which answers the question "why do you work in this department and not others?" This session examines employment brand as a way attract and retain top talent.
