A strong employer brand is imperative for enterprises looking to attract top talent, from a highly-competitive pool of millennial candidates. Unlike traditional methodologies adopted for employer branding, employers today focus on having a consistent presence on multiple platforms and follow a proactive communication approach to devising a technology-powered employer branding strategy. With an aim to present their company image as bold, valuable, vibrant and unique, employers are leveraging the latest technologies for various aspects—from designing and creating a smart career site and email marketing campaign, boosting their social media presence to using robust data analytics and integrations with popular hiring platforms.
To support enterprises in this journey, employer branding consulting/services companies play an instrumental role in helping enterprises align their employee value proposition (EVP) with their organization’s core value, mission, and vision. The employer branding consultants are equipping these organizations with data and information about the kind of work environment Gen-Z employees would prefer. They also efficiently design the branding strategy according to each company’s specific needs and goals.
In the changing landscape of employer branding, HR Tech Outlook has compiled a list of top 10 employer branding consulting/services companies that empower organizations to keep up with the smart and sophisticated employer branding trends. We are glad to feature Sweden-based Universum, one of the largest consulting firms for employer branding worldwide. Universum delivers the critical talent market insights, winning branding strategies, and compelling story-led communication that organizations require to develop a successful employer branding strategy for the new-age talent market.
