                     Employer of Choice

• EOCs promote a positive company image based on demonstrating
  understanding of, and due consideration to, employee needs

• An EOC is an organisation that is able to meet growth and
  profitability goals because it attracts and retains the quality and
  quantity of employees it needs

• Successful organisations offer a compelling reason for people not
  only to join but to stay

• An EOC depends upon individuals‟ perceptions
                    Employer of Choice

• Employees‟ Perceptions are reflected in how or what they:
 Feel; think; experience.

                 Employee Engagement

• EOCs look for employee engagement - ensuring the skills and
  capabilities for employees to perform their jobs, as well as
  motivation, commitment and understanding
• Employee engagement is a positive attitude held by employees
  towards the organisation and its values
• EOCs need Managers of Choice and Employees of Choice who will
  actively promote the company as an EOC and help „organisational
  brand building‟

                                        • Work climate/culture
               • Hiring Practices

                                         - Branham, L. (2005)
                   Employer Branding

• A brand is “essentially a seller‟s promise to consistently deliver a
  specific set of features, benefits, and services to the buyer’ (Kotter

• Employer Branding is „applying traditional marketing principles to
  achieving the status of Employer of Choice…..the process of placing
  an image of being a great place to work in the mind of the
  employee pool’ (Branham 2000)
                  Employer Branding

• EB is the creation and communication of a specific image or
  message though which the EOC promotes and markets its unique
  qualities as an employer.

• “For the foreseeable future, current and potential employees are
  likely to want to work for ethical, successful and well-managed
  organisations.” (Holbeche, p. 317)

-EB is:
 a targeted, long-term strategy to manage
 the awareness and perceptions of
 employees, potential employees and related
 stakeholders in relation to a particular
 firm……….to drive recruitment, retention
 and productivity management efforts.
           Methods of Recruitment
• Employment Agencies (Government and Private)
• Press Advertising – Newspapers, Specialist Journals,
• Other Advertising – TV, Radio, Vacancy boards,
  leaflets, posters
• Word of mouth
• The Internet
• Links with schools/colleges/universities
• Head-hunters
• University milk round
• Open days, recruitment fairs, careers conventions
• Speculative applications

• Firstly, the „value proposition‟ must be identified and defined

 - This comprises the information that summarises the
   organisation‟s values, culture, leadership and management styles,
   qualities of current employees, and opportunities for potential
   employees (etc.) and is developed into a promotional tool that will
   be used to communicate the unique employment opportunities
   that a company can offer to potential employees.

• Secondly, the value proposition is presented to the targeted
  potential employees, via recruiting agencies, head-hunters, web
  sites and carefully constructed advertising to specifically promote
  the company‟s image as an EOC.

• Thirdly, the value proposition of the employer brand is also actively
  marketed internally to the existing workforce to demonstrate
  commitment to these values and the goals set by the organisation.

• Implementation of this three phase process should contribute
  significantly toward changing external perception of a firm.
