From the use of cognitive systems to enhance performance to artificial intelligence to aid collaboration between design and engineering, leading firms are pushing to stay at the forefront as pioneers in their industry.

people work for culture, not companies

Your employer brand is the billboard for your organisation – what people think it would be like to work for you. Four out of five leaders believe that employer brand has a significant impact on the company’s ability to hire great talent. And because people work for cultures not companies, their perception of you as an employer is of paramount importance.

More often than so, the values that define the employer brand are rooted in the earliest tradition of organisations. This includes a stirring passion for what they do, such as pursuing environment sustainability, service excellence or state-of-the-art products.

In a world where there is intense competition for in-demand skills, a strong and compelling employer brand will not just appeal to the talent companies want to attract, but also nurture loyalty within the workforce.
