Build a Strategy
To develop your employer brand, building the organization’s strategy and understanding these needs with clear definition and prioritization is the basic step. There is no do it all strategy but each company must develop each system by proper planning and analysis of its current positions. Defining your clear-cut goals that are to be immediately addressed and given special preferences are all based on the present status. For a new start-up, the primary focus will be on attracting new candidates and talents. However, a company that is losing its talents must begin with retention strategies and mechanisms.
Streamline your target people
Building up a demographics and category of people with specific profiles and stages of careers will help streamline your strategies and campaign efforts as they need different messages to cater to their psychologies, financial and non-financial needs and interests that need to be addressed. It is also necessary to choose the right direction for your HR brand and to ensure that it is aligned with the culture you are trying to build an employee brand and culture, both internally and externally.
Decide your offer
The EVP or the employee value proposition is one of the most important and well-studied topics in HR. The idea conveys the entire proposal of the employer to the candidates which fully encompasses the opportunities, development possibilities and other perks and benefits on a holistic scale. This EVP must be carefully evaluated based on the real needs and wishes of the employees or candidates and presented to be more attractive and interesting than that of your closest competitors. Also, understanding the competitive landscape and what you are up against is as important as devising your own strategy. What makes your competitors attractive to job seekers, and what strategies do they use for employee retention are questions to ponder on before taking steps.
