Webinar | Employment Branding – What message does your brand send?

June 22

1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EDT

Webinar

Free for Members | $39 for Non-Members

Every organization has an employment brand. This brand tells the world what it's like to be a part of your organization. Employment branding is very similar to branding that organizations create for their products or services. In the branding of automobiles, some brands have the image of being sporty and fast, while other images of family, soccer games, and versatility.

In the same regard, organizations have brands as to what it is like to be an employee. Some have images of a very structured and formal environment, while others are relaxed and embrace fun. Branding should be intentional and reflect the organization's culture.
