Event as PDF

More and more companies are suffering from a shortage of specialists and are battling for new employees as well as new customers. The demographic development, global cut-throat competition, the political environment, and new values for employee-generation  “Y”  mean that recruitment and motivation need rethinking. A high salary is no longer enough to attract good employees and retain their enthusiasm in the long term.

Leading companies are relying more and more on the power of a strong employer brand which makes the company more attractive and increases the number and quality of job applications. If the brand is also mobilized within the company, this can strengthen the identification and loyalty of the existing employees. Studies prove that an attractive employer brand increases the length of time the employees remain with the company by up to 50% and reduces recruitment costs by up to 40%.

Employer branding stands for the systematic development of a strong employer brand. This is not to be confused with personnel marketing or an employer image campaign. It requires unique positioning as the basis for all activities. Using this foundation, a consistent employer world is created both within the company and outside, and long-lasting brand power is established.
