Getting a Grip on Talent: Work, Identity and Brand

Los Angeles, CA - Sep 12, 2019

Overview

In today’s tight labor market, what does it take to convince candidates to choose you—competitive compensation, your reputation as a great place to work, their experience with you as a customer and candidate or some other variable?

Indeed reveals new research on the variables driving job seeker decision-making, diving deep into the role that brand plays in their choices to apply to, engage with and accept offers from certain companies over others. Harness your newfound understanding of the brains and behavior of prospective candidates to elevate your employer brand, ensuring your organization is top of mind for today’s top talent.

When a person embarks on a new job search, does your company immediately come to mind as a place they would like to work? When a job seeker is perusing a list of open roles, does your company stand out among the rest? Gain an appreciation for the power of a strong employer brand in attracting and retaining top talent, who seek an employer with as stellar a reputation as their own, and walk away with proven strategies for connecting with job seekers even before your first conversation. Trust comes from transparency, so show everyone who you are to attract who you want.
