They say nothing shapes an employer brand as much as how a company shows up and takes action or drops the ball in the midst of difficult times. If there was ever a moment that demanded empathy, transparency and action, it’s now.
Joining us this week are Leslie Vickrey, CEO and Founder of ClearEdge Marketing, and Kim Pope, Chief Operating Officer at WilsonHCG, as they share what matters most (and the biggest surprises!) when it comes to being an employer of choice.
They will also share some of the main findings from WilsonHCG’s 2021 Fortune 500 Employment Branding Report, as well as how some of the largest and most well-known organizations are leading the charge and never looking back.
We will discuss:
- What are the new job seeker expectations and preferences when choosing to work for – and remain with – a company?
- What are some of the top things you should be thinking about now to best position yourselves as an employer of choice?
- What was “good enough” is no longer enough— what do employers need to change?
As always- no sales pitches. No boring presentations. Just good conversation.
