People are attracted to a company for a variety of reasons and there are many different things that people look for in their ideal workplace. Whereas some may be drawn to an organisation who have a great reputation, as a long standing and successful business; others may look for a company who share and support their personal values.  Regardless of the specific factors that appeal to individual candidates, it’s essential for a business to nail their employer brand making and come across as a great environment to work in, in order to attract the right kind of people.
