A company's personnel make it great. And exceptional people seek out leading brands. Recruiters are increasingly actively seeking the best applicants, even those who aren't actively looking. Employer branding can help you compete with large organizations with well-known brands. According to LinkedIn research, an employer brand is twice as likely to be linked to job consideration as a corporate brand.
In this episode of PCTY Talks, Monica Robert and host Shari Simpson discuss how having a great brand identity can help you attract great talent.
