How to Enhance Your Employer Brand in 2019

Posted by Damon Ankers on 09-Apr-2019 13:02:00

As the age old proverb goes 'never judge a book by its cover'. However, in our increasingly digital world we're quick to make assumptions. If a website doesn't look 'legit' or meet our expectations we're quick to judge and duly abandon site. With that being said, could your employer brand (or lack of it) be turning job seekers away? 

When hunting for a job the modern day job seeker (particularly those in the Millennial & GenZ demographics) simply expect more from a potential employers web presence. Before applying for a role they'll head to your career site, read your content, explore your social media channels and scour employee reviews sites for valuable insight into your organisation. 

Being deficient in any of these areas can leave job seekers disgruntled, reluctant to apply or even put off of your brand for life.  

Research gathered by Randstad has shed some fascinating light on the impact of employer brand with 50% of applicants saying that they wouldn't work for a company that had a negative reputation, even with the promise of a pay rise. On the contrary 84% of employees would consider quitting their job to take an offer from a company with a great reputation

To help you stand out and differentiate in a crowded employment market we've put together our shortlist of top actionable tips & tricks to enhance your employer brand and become the envy of your market competition.

What Millennials want from the Workplace

Posted by Damon Ankers on 05-Apr-2019 16:09:59

In forthcoming years 2017 is likely to be looked back upon as the greatest catalyst to change this side of the millennium. It was of course the year that democracy rained supreme. Brits voted with their feet for Brexit and our colonial cousins inaugurated Donald Trump into the White House. 

But, did you know that 2017 was also the year that Millennials displaced their predecessors 'Gen X' as the overwhelming majority in the workplace?

With a record number of baby boomers heading into retirement many of those who once held workplace seniority have passed the reins over to the next generation (Gen X) to direct the proverbial ship. 

As with each new generation that enters the market attitude and ideology of work (and life in fact) differ. Today's business and HR leaders are now responsible for putting those differences aside and create hiring processes and workplaces that are Millennial friendly. 

Businesses that fail to acclimatise to the millennial environment are effectively "building a wall" between their business and potential candidates. To ensure that you're ticking all of your Millennials boxes we've put together 5 key points that must be addresses to attract, recruit, engage and retain the best young professionals available.
