As an HR challenge, employer brands
Companies are increasingly looking for creative, qualified employees. Companies invest heavily in recruitment and selection to ensure that they hire qualified workers capable of providing top-quality services. Most modern companies have modified their internal processes in order to strengthen their employer brand. Marketing a company’s reputation and image is referred to as brand marketing. It involves promoting the company’s identity and positive impact on its workers and customers. According to Noe and colleagues, 2017, organizations adapt work styles and job descriptions according to their target audience. Organizations promote their brands by fostering an inclusive culture that encourages diversity and adaptability. Businesses also have a corporate social responsibility program that shows they are aware of the environment and willing to help minority and disadvantaged people.
Employers can benefit from relevance
A company’s employer brand has many advantages, including the possibility of recruiting competent employees, building market loyalty, and increasing global brand equity. For retaining and hiring competent employees, an employer brand is essential. Employee branding can be a great way to attract qualified staff when there are limited resources and financial means. Employer branding can help a company recruit candidates for employment they don’t like when offered by others (Maurer 2019). A welcoming environment, clear goals and opportunities for professional growth and promotion, as well as a superior workplace culture will increase the chances that employees will refer their family and friends to employers. Employer brand includes aspects such as culture, work relationships and the employer’s value proposition.
Employees are important
Employers’ brand is important to employees as it affects their productivity and loyalty. A strong employer brand can increase the employees’ feeling of belonging. Employees may be more inclined to recommend the organization to their family and friends. Employees are more motivated when a company is well-respected in the market (Maheshwar and co., 2017). They are more productive, which makes it easier to improve or maintain their market reputation. Google’s brand equity means that employees are more productive and inventive than ever.
Potential employees will find relevance
Potential workers are influenced by the employer’s brand. Competent individuals evaluate the reputation of an employer before accepting a job. A poll found that more than 90% of job-seekers consider the reputation of a company to be an important consideration when looking for new opportunities (Maheshwar and al., 2017). People who feel that their company is not supportive of their self-esteem or self-actualization needs may be reluctant to send their resumes. It may be more challenging for organizations to retain or recruit qualified employees.
