Employer Branding

Using digital channels to project a company as an employer of choice is a challenge that stands at the frontier of corporate communications today. That’s because it requires credible and comprehensive content, a straightforward and user-friendly application process as well as a careful combination of channels in an increasingly social and mobile era.


Lundquist has placed particular attention on the topic of online employer branding because it is an area where companies need to be most distinctive in their communications, reaching out to their target audience and persuading them they make a suitable match. As testified by our employer branding research, users long ago grew weary and suspicious of empty phrases and faceless corporate profiles.



Our view is that even in times of economic difficulty, companies need to build an employer brand online: the challenge lies in moving beyond a mere recruitment-based approach towards strategic use of digital tools – the corporate website and social media – to boost reputation both in the marketplace for talent and in the online world generally.

Into the sustainability labyrinth: Lundquist event provides guidance on a distinctive response to mandatory reporting

It’s a critical moment for corporate sustainability in Italy and companies turned out in force at an event we held in Milan last week to hear how to turn this year’s legal obligation on non-financial transparency into an opportunity.


We hosted over 60 participants from 38 registered companies at TIMSpace for a morning of presentations and conversations about the merits of a distinctive approach to sustainability for the benefit of the entire business, covering topics of sustainability strategies, non-financial reporting, stakeholder engagement and communications. Entitled “Nel Labirinto della Sostenibilità” (In the Sustainability Labyrinth), the event warned about the dangers of having a narrow, compliance-oriented response to the requirements of the Italian decree mandating reporting on some social and environmental matters (read our blog post on how the decree is changing the Italian sustainability scenario – in Italian.)
