EVP Masterclass

Employer Value Propositions (EVP) may not be the magic bullet that will attract an "unfair" or disproportionate share of workers, but that doesn't make it any less of a powerful tool for your talent attraction program. Appropriately developed, your EVP will create alignment between what individuals value and the values lived out in the work experience. When this alignment exists and flows through to your recruitment marketing, it makes it easier for prospective candidates to self-select into (or out of) your organization. It also helps reduce attrition while increasing productivity because who you say you are as an organization is congruent with how employees experience employment in your organization. So how do you get there? In this half-day class, walk through a proven EVP development process to help you build an actionable, aligned employer brand.

You'll learn the following:

  • How to assess your readiness to create your employer brand in-house or if you need third-party help
  • What you need to research and how to audit competitors to determine your strengths and their weaknesses
  • How to engage key stakeholders to help in building out your EVP
  • How to create the talking points your recruiting team will need to attract and engage needed talent (you don't need to attract EVERYONE, just the right ones)
  • How and when to engage your workforce to amplify and elevate your EVP
