Employer Branding

Your Employer Value Proposition and COVID-19

A pandemic, or any crisis, will be an acid test for your corporate furniture such as purpose, values, principles, behaviors, etc. In the employer brand world, we have to ensure our EVP is robust and is delivering what it promises, in good times and bad.

An EVP positioning will typically consist of three to five pillars, which are several themes deemed unique enough to be used for communication purposes. They are there to enlighten talent as to why they should consider joining your organization, and of course, to remind people why they should stay.

We thought it could be useful to review some of the typical themes and how they could be perceived during this Coronavirus situation.
