Leveraging Your Employer Brand to Attract Top Talent
May 18, 2017 – Norwalk, CT
With the state and national unemployment rates near their lowest in years, the competition for top talent is raging. Companies of all sizes and from all industries struggle to attract and land top talent. Challenged by time constraints and limited resources, all companies must learn to leverage available internal and external resources to develop their candidate pipelines.
A company’s brand is often the most overlooked and under-utilized tool in its recruiting arsenal. An employer’s brand is a powerful tool that creates a positive perception and makes it easier to recruit the very best candidates. Companies with a strong employer brand are perceived as an excellent place to work, with attractive values and promising career prospects. Is your company’s employer brand helping or hurting you in the competition for talent? What is your strategy to make your employer brand more attractive to job seekers?
At our next session, Leveraging Your Employer Brand to Attract Top Talent, we will explore the multiple ways companies can use their employer brand to attract the talent they are seeking. Panelists will include senior level recruiting and human resources professionals representing large, mid-sized and small employers. They will share their experiences and discuss ideas for improving and marketing one’s brand. They will also discuss specific strategies that companies with limited recruiting resources can employ to improve their brands and remain competitive in the competition for talent.
