All companies have Employer Branding; either it is good or bad, if they worked on it or not, it is up to you to define what kind it would be.
For a proper Employer Branding it is necessary to consider the following aspects.
Treat your employees with the same importance you treat a client
They are the main brand ambassadors; they will give publicity by word of mouth and tell others the good and bad experiences that have had with you.
Get to know your company
You have to know your strengths to take advantage of them and make sure your employees and candidates know them.
Use social networks
A company that does not use your social networks is almost invisible and generates distrust for the prospects.
Involves all the company
The entire company must be involved for the Employer Branding to be successful. Not only the Human Resources Department. Win your employee’s heart with loyalty policies and they will help you to attract more talented professionals.
Not so sure if the Employer Branding is real yet? Let's take a look at the example of Google, they have free shuttle service, break rooms, healthcare, generous vacation, travel, aid in courses, legal advice, and so many more benefits. If Google knocks on your door tomorrow with a job offer, would you have to give it a second thought? If you're a small or medium business, it is the time that you build your brand through your employees. Something you can start working with, has no cost and is very effective for generating high sense of belonging to the brand is unit.
It is something that we have worked from the beginning with my current employer (LAAgencia B.C.), one of our values is to take care of each other, greet someone and make them feel at home is very important for us, to break down the barriers of this boss/employee relationship and engage transparent discussions generates a very good working environment, it makes you feel as if you were at home.
It is all in your hands to define your Employer’ Branding and the improvements of your company’s talent.
