Employer Brand Agency
We turn employer branding into your competitive advantage.
What Is Employer Branding?
The job of an employer brand practitioner is to brand and market the employment experience of a given company. First, you define a common understanding of the universal experience of working at an organisation, and then you create communication campaigns to tell everyone about it. Our goal is to create an employer brand platform that reflects an employer’s organisational performance objectives and drives attraction, engagement, and retention of talent who will thrive at our organisation.
Employer Brand Defined: How people describe what it’s like to work at your organisation.
What Is Employee Value Proposition?
Our approach to Employee Value Proposition (EVP) is to identify the Give and the Get to articulate not only the benefits, strengths, and opportunities someone receives from working at your organisation but also the demands, expectations, and realities of what it takes to really thrive. By defining the Give and the Get of employee experience, employees clearly know what is expected of them and what they can expect of you as an employer. It works to attract and retain talent who is a good culture match or culture add, while equally repelling those who are not.
Employee Value Proposition Defined: Clear propositions designed to provide insight and clarity around what your talent must be willing to give your organisation in return for what they can get from your organisation. These propositions are designed to crystallize what kind of people thrive at your organisation and why they should care.
Who Is Employer Branding For?
Most companies and organisations can benefit from working with an experienced Employer Branding agency, particularly if they are:
• Struggling to find the right talent.
• Experiencing high turnover.
• Growing fast.
• Want a more unified culture.
• Paying too much per hire.
• Looking to refresh an old Employer Brand.
The Three As
Attention – This is where we determine the ideal reputation your organisation needs to find and retain the right talent. What do you want to be famous for?
Affinity – Here we develop a proposition that sums up and cultivates the environment that talent is looking for in an employer.
Affection – This is the fun bit, where we bring those messages to life from a talent experience perspective.
Employer Branding Is for Global Organisations and SMEs
Whether you are a global giant or a regional SME, size doesn’t matter when creating an Employer Brand. The scale is different, but the elements are largely the same across all companies, big or small.
You want to attract and retain the right talent and improve your reputation — standing out above your competition as a place where people really want to work with purpose and belonging. Your values match their values. It’s the perfect fit. And when employees genuinely live and breathe your company values, customers can see it — so it’s good for business too.
The Benefits of Developing an Employer Brand Strategy
How others perceive your organisation matters. Your orgnisation has a reputation among employees and job candidates, even if you haven't intentionally curated it. Intentionally crafting your reputation is crucial for your organisation's long-term success.
Here are some of the key advantages of developing a compelling employer brand:
- Attract qualified talent: Employees want to work for companies whose values align with theirs. Your employer brand sets your organisation apart and attracts candidates who genuinely represent and advocate your company's values.
- Boost workplace morale: A welcoming, encouraging workplace makes your employees feel valued, understood and happy. The happier your employees are, the more qualified word-of-mouth referrals your company receives.
- Become a top employer: Become a candidate's dream company by developing an employer brand that people are proud to represent. Be compelling and original by genuinely embodying your company's workplace values.
- Develop brand ambassadors: Employees sing a company's praises when it prioritises their personal and professional success and happiness. Happy employees become genuine brand ambassadors.
- Improve retention: Hiring qualified talent that embodies your workplace's values naturally reduces turnover. Candidates are more likely to be a good fit and feel satisfied with your organisation.

Repel the Many to Compel the Few
An EVP is as much about repelling the wrong people as it is about attracting the right ones. Think of it as a filter that sits between your recruitment marketing and your inbox. It’s about quality over quantity. Attracting fewer great candidates is much better than many bad fits. Attracting the right people is essential if you want to create a healthy, successful, and happy workplace culture.
A good EVP tells the truth about the struggles employees might face in order to succeed at your company. You'll be amazed at what happens to your recruitment funnel when you balance those demands against the rewards applicants stand to gain in return.
Employer Brand Reputation
An employer’s reputation can be broken down into what we like to call the three Cs:
- Career Catalyst – Will it help their career?
- Citizenship – Does it match their values?
- Culture – Will they enjoy working there?
Candidates are better equipped to pick and choose their own career paths than ever before. A bad application experience can really damage your reputation — people in the same industry talk — that’s why an incredible candidate experience is vital. Every touchpoint counts.
Employee Value Proposition
We believe your Employer Brand and EVP become much more effective when you’re clear about what everyone brings to the table. We call this Give and Get – if you give us this, we’ll give you that. Simple.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Branding
A richer and more inclusive workforce is good for business. It brings a wider mix of ideas to the table and helps you better serve a more diverse range of communities and customers. But when diversity is at the heart of your talent attraction strategy or Employer Brand, it needs genuine insight, a delicate touch and bags of creative ideas. The last thing you want is to get it wrong, offend people or create something that seems tokenistic. And that’s where we can help…
