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.
