Top Tips for Employer Branding

Top Tips for Employer Branding

Here are our five top tips to stand out from the crowd!

1 – Knowing your audience, do your research and put yourself in the candidates’ shoes. Focus groups are a great way to get honest feedback.

2-What is your unique selling proposition? What makes you stand out from the crowd should be at the forefront of your EVP. Celebrate your differences.

3-Consistency is key. Ensure your brand voice aligns with your company values and culture and that this is clearly portrayed across your website and any recruitment marketing collateral.

4: Be authentic, be honest about what your business stands for, and don’t hide behind vague messaging. Your candidates will see through this.

5 – Your Employee’s are your biggest advocates. Social media content shared by employees gets 8 times more engagement than the brands' own social channels and it is shared 25 times more frequently.

Did you know? Employer Branding...

Did you know? Employer Branding...

Did you know that the human brain can process visuals at a rate of 60,000 faster than words?

The look and feel of your businesses branding and online presence sticks in a candidate’s memory long after they have visited your careers site.

Put yourself in your candidates’ shoes, take the journey with them and ask yourself, is your employer brand the best it could be?

We asked our clients - The recruitment market today

We asked our clients - The recruitment market today

We asked our clients how they are finding today's job market.

Job seekers are now in the driving seat; talented people know they have multiple options, and they won’t be afraid to drop out if their expectations are not met.

Some of the most common candidate frustrations are around poor organisation, such as interviews being moved, long interview processes, no feedback at all, current salary being ignored, little or no communication, and delays in feedback and paperwork being sent.

These may seem like lots of small things; however, this could cost you your new hire.

eArcu offers a complete Talent Acquisition Suite with fully integrated features, providing an efficient and smooth experience for every step of the recruitment process.

Is it time for a new ATS?

Is it time for a new ATS?

On average, a recruiter’s workload has increased by 28% over the last 2 years, and many organisations are now facing the demands of high-volume recruitment. With this in mind, TA functions are questioning whether their current ATS systems are designed to support such activities and whether they are equipped to cope with the ever-increasing demand.

The shortage of quality candidates has created a need for intelligent technology solutions that doesn’t take the "one size fits all" approach.

#FIRMday London

#FIRMday London

What a fab day we had yesterday in London at #FIRMday! Thank you, Melanie Punch, for joining our very own Mark Ferrer on stage to share your story of how you created an engaging candidate experience at Investec. It was great to hear how you implemented new processes and how much of a positive impact this had on the business and your candidate journey.

It was lovely to see so many of our clients enjoying the presentations and discussions that were held throughout the day.

Thanks again to The Firm for another great event. We look forward to returning to that amazing venue next month for the #FIRMAwards2022.
