Defining your employee value proposition is essentially finding the answer to this simple question … why should people choose to work for you as opposed to someone else? Often the complication comes because the answer you’ll get will differ depending on who in the business you talk to. We are here to help you find out the truth. What it is that makes you a great employer – and how you can share this with your target audiences. Building a more attractive proposition that will bring in more people. And help you keep the great people you already have.

We use robust research and deep conversation to get a real insight into your business. Uncovering the great and the not-so-great things. Identifying real areas of strength. Finding the stories to support your claims. And passing this insight to our creative team to help shape your employer branding and marketing messages. Messaging designed to support you as you engage with both your current and future employees.

How we can help

Research and insight

We want to discover what is demonstrably good, and ideally different, about working for you. We use a robust, but quick and agile, research process to ensure that we uncover the real truth. We will find the best aspects, but ground them in fact, so that it is as attractive as possible, but also recognised by current staff and new starters alike.

EVP development

We will give you a rounded picture using both data and the most representative direct quotes so that you get a true sense of our findings. We’ll explore your employer personality, the strong themes upon which your employer proposition can be built, and your proposition itself. Together these aspects will ensure that your proposition fully represents the opinions of your workforce.

Creative articulation

Many of the decisions that we make are based on emotion and not logic. So we’ll look at how your employer value proposition can be articulated using creativity, a strong visual identity and the right messages. We’ll help you create a look and feel that is instantly recognisable, compelling, flexible and uniquely you.

Sharing strategy

With your proposition in place and your marketing messages nailed, we’ll help you put them in front of your target audience. We’ll research where the people you’re looking for are active, what they’re looking for and how you can meet their expectations. We’ll talk job boards, aggregators, search, social, outdoor – heck – we’ll even consider press advertising. Let’s go fishing where the fish are.

Film for employer branding

We love film. It’s the perfect medium for storytelling. It allows us to reflect an organisation’s values, culture and fit with more purpose than ever before. We work with some fantastic film makers combining our expertise in employer branding and marketing with their passion for making great little films. Together we have delivered some engaging, informative and – dare we say it – emotive pieces of film that our clients are really proud of.
